Dandilions

First a balled-up leaf
pushing up and out,
bolder than winter-
weary grass and spikes
of snowdrop.

Unfurling, the jagged
spears of leaves spread,
a web of sorts for
sunny yellow blossoms.

In time, fully flowered,
gone to seed, the winged
kites are ready to fly with
a stray puff of wind or
childish breath.

A note: The photo above was taken by my hugely talented cousin, Leah. She has a book of wildflowers one can purchase on Shutterfly. She’s amazing. :)

Writer, reader, and all about scamp, I also work as a legal secretary to pay the bills and have so many hobbies they have become kind of disjointed. I think I need more focus. Look! A rabbit!

  1. Beautiful — like the spray of a dandelion on a spring morning.
