|** Dandelion Yellow **
Dandelion yellow - simple in the sun
Overlooked you are - by most everyone.
But I'm fascinated - at the way you live
From yellow to white - and in death, you give...
Delicate, fragile - you turn white as snow
So many beginnings - released as winds blow.
You give up your life - so that many may bloom
With small parachutes - you crumble too soon...
Dandelion white - how giving you are
To some, you're a weed - To me, you're a star.
So simple in life - and so lovely in death
I pick a handful - and take a deep breath...

** A big thank you to Gloria (Lost Dreamer) for inspiring this little ditty. I wrote it several days ago, but just now decided to post it. Hope you like it girl! I've missed you!
