Dandelion Wishes


Dandelion puff,
a child's brightest wishes
blow away on the breeze.



Tiny lawn daisies 
held in a grubby fist:
no bouquet as precious.


Weed growing strong
in a harsh root-bed
has much to teach us about tenacity.


for Susan's prompt at Mid Week Motif: weeds.

  1. Sherry,

    You've captured the many facets in which plants, oft considered to be useless weeds, are indeed strong of character and as pretty as any other posy gift!

  7. Tenacity and endurance, how much we can learn even from the common weeds and flowers that many just walk on.

  8. Indeed the tenaciousness of weeds is something for us to emulate! And who cannot appreciate the joy a child takes in dandelion fluff?

  13. Those tiny flowers are beautiful. They don't invade the conscious mind as the stately rose for example, but only soothe the tired eye

  18. I like all three of these. My wedding bouquet was made of daisies, so that one was special to me. I wish I were as tenacious as weeds, it can be a good quality to have. Take care Sherry.

  20. Love that last one, especially, Sherry. I have often thought that...how a burst of green can grow, as from the crack in a sidewalk. Well done.
