Löwenzahn / Dandelion / Diente de león  (Kaintaishi)

Am Feldrand nahe dem Wald
Zwischen den Hecken ganz klein
Leuchtet Löwenzahn hervor
Farbkleckse auf dunklem Grün

At fields's edge near the woods
Between the hedges quite small
The dandelion shines forth
Blurs of colour on dark green

Al borde del campo cerca del bosque
Muy pequeño entre los setos
Adelanta brilla el diente de león 
Borrónes de color en verde oscuro

    like little sunshines in the hedge bottom, just as long as they aren't in my lawn :)

    One of nature's prettiest and sturdiest wild flower, Gert. Glad you appreciate enough to write this Haiku. Enjoyed. Always, Annalise

    So many people think of dandelions as weeks, but to me they are like little drops of yellow sunshine. You describe them beautifully, Gert. Love, Carolyn
