Dandelions

Green fingers plucked you
to become prima donnas
of the dumping site.

On a sandy grave
poverty's roses are placed
by sorrowful hearts.

    I appreciate your comments, Drake. The poor are often discarded to the fringes of society, but with little resources they can find strength to endure... David

    Great expressive and emotive work expressing the beauty of the dandelion and the loss of a loved one..Enjoyed reading this morn..Dandelions were brought over here as a food source by the first settlers..The leaves can be eaten as a bitter herb and the flowers are edible also..I think that they have medicinal benefits also..Thanks for stopping by..Sara
