Oh, dear ragged little sunshine-blossomed weed Charming from thy sprout to wispy seed Cursed to pester garden kings Still, your fairness sings Urchin, bright Buttoned Up each night Roots to test a smile Yet your fuzzy fronds beguile Vexing bursts of butter on my lawn How I wish for it, then miss you when you're gone. ~ 3rd Place ~ in the "Writing Challenge 2, June 2019 - A Summer Flower" Poetry Contest, Dear Heart, Judge & Sponsor. (Syllables = 11, 9, 7, 5, 3, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, counted @ HowManySyllables.com)

Thank you SO much, DW, I greatly appreciate it! Misunderstood and under-appreciated ... and in the grand scheme of flowering life cycles, it is extraordinarily fascinating, if only folks would give it a chance. Blessings, Friend! :o)

Many kind thanks, Jeanne ... I am an irrepressible sort of weed myself, and I feel a connection to these little wonders. As much of a miracle as any flower, really, and beautiful in their way. Blessings! :o) <3

Thank you so much, Sandra, I greatly appreciate it! They can be difficult, but I love them for that reason and also because they are so hearty and colorful ... I believe I relate to them directly, and that I'm a bit of a weed myself. ;-) Blessings! <3
