Dandelion Wishing

Recollections waft
across my mind like
wisps of soft white spores - 
the vague remnants of
my memory’s threads.

Spring’s sun-gold heads
I now can‘t hold!
But glimpsing them,
I can recall. . ..

a young girl
blowing fluff
and wishing

time would

    A lovey expression of the treasured past Andrea you write supremely well, oh by the way Eileen was a co worker that collected anything frogs so one day I thought it would be nice to add a custom poem to her collection =)

    Hi Andrea, I have been under the impression that you are allowed to enter a contest and later, within the contest period, change it to something better. A note to the sponsor would be helpful, though. Especially if they have already read your poem and filed it into a judging category. I have changed poems in the past. I think I even placed with one, too. Good luck. You are right. The contests are going very fast! Take care, Andrea. Lovingly, Dane Ann

    Remember the song "Dandelion" by the Rolling Stones? That is what your poem reminded me of. Fine work - and a new form on me! Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish
