Seed Gliders

Canary yellow flowers herald in the spring.
So bold are we sitting in sea of green.
Most grown-ups look at us as weeds.
They pluck, dig, spray and mow with limited success.
The curse, when our yellow flowers turn fluffy white.
We have many seed gliders attached to our white heads,
Just waiting for the wind to blow our seeds, setting us all free.
Assaulting from the air, not caring where we land,
Settling in the soil and waiting for our germination to begin.

Remember when-

Dandelions were the flowers of your youth.
An act of playfulness, gingerly you picked our stalks,
And blew our fluffy white heads high up in the air-
In one breath was your goal,
Then watched our white swirls dance upon the wind.

So next time you pass by our fluffy white heads,
Become a child once more and blow.


For Sandy Ivy D's contest, "Seeds"

    I love this one because I love the lowly dandelion!!! Too bad people see them so wrongly because then I would not feel compelled to get rid of them on my yard!! But with them usually comes crab grass at MY house and I have to get that grass mowed!!

    Lovely write, Connie. Oh to be a child again. I'm afraid I'm forever a child, and my husband wonders if I will ever grow up? ;) Thanks for your visit! Love hearing from you! Hugs!

    I loved doing this when I was a child much to my father's chagrin! This was such a fun thing to do, blowing those white pieces into the air, watching them float everywhere! This is a perfect reminder, this poem, a reminder of childhood fun! What a delightful and enlightening piece, Great Work!!
