Dandelion Dream

-Dandelion Dream-

I stand close with a fistful of flowers
My tiny bouquet made of dandelion dreams 
They fade with one gush from the wind
I stand close with a fistful of flowers
Holding on tight to jagged leaves 
Sprinkles of sand fall over my needs
I stand close with a fistful of flowers
My tiny bouquet made of dandelion dreams

    Pretty flowers come alive in this fistful of a dreamy triolet, smooth and fascinating with the images it presents.

    Skat, very pretty Triolet, I used to pick dandelions for my mom, they were always totally wilted, but she still put them in a glass on the window ledge, 7, and thanks for visiting my poem, Quick Exit

    Beautiful imagery; I love the dandelion--except when it overtakes my lawn. Thanks for your recent visit to my poem "Books."

    Many dreams vanish into thin air...with one puff of wind; but others survive and flourish! Lovely write where imagery is a reality. // paul

    A short write but so powerful. A mark of a finer sense of expression. Bravo and especially loved the line "Holding on tight to jagged leaves"

    Beautiful. You know it's good poetry when you feel better inside, almost as if you had written it yourself. I felt that gush of wind.. Do write on dear poet. ~Teresa

    Humble subject, great theme! A transformation is possible only with a skillful poet. SKAT you are that. My grandson makes dandelion bouquet during the summer for his "MOM", my daughter. Thanks SKAT for dreaming dandelion!

    I love the way you described those dreams as dandelions blown with the wind..Very beautifully described..Dreams go and others come..just like Spring flowers..Lovely.
