parachute fluff

it’s the downy kite stuff 
of wandered wishes, childish 
dreams and fragile hope. 

so much pondered 
promise in the 
and tenacity 
of a simple weed. 

we don’t stop to doubt 
or wonder why. we just 
take a deep breath 






Merril’s got an awesome prompt for us over at the dVerse Quadrille this week. Come play.

    Should I ask the lord’s gardener
    for direction
    my dandelions think
    they are sunflowers?

    It was just a short term thing
    now my dandelions
    have white hair like me
    some have even lost it
    on top.

    Beautiful poem as well as the structure of the poem. Creativity at its best. 🙂

  8. I think if I could, I would let go

    be fluff, with a payload of seed.

    This is absolutely stellar writing, De! I especially love; “so much pondered promise in the audacity and tenacity of a simple weed.” I agree! 💝💝
