The thistle stood as tall as me
their spiny crowns so sparkly
from drops of morning dew that shone
like diamonds in creation’s throne.

I will offer much more respect to the thistle, after reading your wonderful words. What a very simple but wonderful, majestic image.

Anyone who can make a thistle hold creation's throne deserve's an A+ in my book. :) Well written piece with a truly lovely central image.
