...where Pen is mightier than the sword...
Don't talk to me about dandelions! We're awash with them. Intriguing poem, though.
Great opening thought.
3 cheers for writing about dandelion, a severely underrated flower :)
Dead good! I love Dandelions too!!
Very pretty! I like dandelions - such bright, cheery flowers, but they can be a pest. We once made dandelion wine. We had three slaves at the time so it was relatively easy to pick enough to make wine. We all had yellow hands but none of us wet the bed that night.
I used to simply ignore dandelions, until I met Gwendolyn Brooks who called herself one. It made a world of difference,Elizabeth
Cool! I love the picture, too. This is clever, Jinksy!
Love the opening to this, Jinksy. Quite a pretty poem.Pamela
I so enjoy dandelion dreams...although the do have that tendency of blowing away to dance on any passing breeze.... Sweet poem
I like dandelions and I like what you did here. Turning a negative into a positive is my husband's favourite thing to do.
...and they're delicious, dipped and cooked in egg bater like french toast. Yum the flower AND the poem.
I am falling in love with your poetic voice. This is just lovely.
Okay, I can pretend that I understand the poem, but that would be silly ;-)In Dutch dandelions are called paardebloemen. And a 'paard' is a horse. So I just have to like dandelions. But not in the borders. I don't mind a few of them in the grass ;-)
I love dandelions. Probably because we don't have them here. Lovely soft poem.
