Melting A Dandelion’s Heart

02 Aug

               The lawn was mowed. But she,

                              the dandelion, takes center stage.

                                             The bee’s first nectar of spring,

Bright yellow color and sturdy display;

Stubborn and brave.

 

Flowering  delicate silver seeds

               Embraced by the breeze, sends her offsprings

                              High into the air, without argument, to land in-between

Blades of grass, hiding in the green of night,

To grow in the bright of day.

 

Not so stubborn and still very brave.

 

I lean against her slender body,

               After dismounting my cricket,

                              Allowing me her shade.

I tune his wings, as she bends ever so slightly

To listen to our serenade.

 

Not so stubborn, trustingly brave.

    Your title actually melted MY heart and made me smile. I adore this poem, love how stubbornly brave she is, determined to evade the lawnmower and shine her brightness……..and how I love the closing line – not so stubborn, trustingly brave.- as one needs to be, in this old world. Gorgeous poem, my friend.

    The dandelion does know how to steal the show!! We humans can learn lessons from the dandelion, i think.

    You had me at ‘melting a dandelions heart’….I knew this would be filled with imagery and whimsy…never disappointed as we ride the cricket amongst the bright and beautiful dandelions….such a maligned flower.

    What a lovely story! I’ve always liked dandelions myself. Never understood the lengths folks go to in order to eradicate them. I find them beautiful.

    “lowering delicate silver seeds

    Embraced by the breeze, sends her offsprings

    High into the air, without argument, to land in-between” Brilliant! Just like how the dandelions disperse with a sudden yet firm kiss of the wind,Smiles..Loved it.
