My New Poem: Treasure

Rate: 5 Flag





Treasure

 

The dandelion

Is my friend--

 

Incantation

Of the sun--

 

That interrupts

The green--

 

A golden

Punctuation

 

That causes

Pause.

 

It's such a lowly weed

That forces us to see

 

Ambiguity--

And conformity.

 

An earth-bound

Constellation--

 

It sings

Of spring.

 

I love its seeds--

Sweet bubble

 

On a stem

Of eternity.

 

Blow--

Make a wish--

 

I'll settle for less

Than blades of grass--

 

I desire rounds

Of gold--

 

Circles and miracles--

The often-overlooked . . .

Jane: Yes, people do have a mind-set against dandelions!

Linda: great phrase: "floral twins." Thanks.
“Prince or pauper, beggar man or thing
Play the game with ev'ry flow'r you bring
Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion
One o'clock, two o'clock, three o'clock, four o'clock chimes
Dandelions don't care about the time
Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion
Tho' you're older now its just the same
You can play this dandelion game
When you're finished with your childlike prayers
Well, you know you should wear it
Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailors lives
Rich man, poor man, beautiful, daughters wives
Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion
Little girls, and boys come out to play
Bring your dandelions to blow away
Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion”

I liked yours too.
Jack: When I taught school, I always taught Will Stanton's poem "Dandelions." He said just about everything one could possibly say about them . . . Thanks . . .
