a dandelion

i opened the car door 
and a dandelion found its way in 
it was. . . it was grand. . . like it can. . . be. . .
before it allows itself to grow old 
and lets me blow. . . it away 
but isn't that the way 
all souls 
come together 
don't they grow 
in soil and toil 
while they wait for rain 
don't they bring down the sun 
to raise themselves for one 
more chance 
to pick out someone 
that might pick them
