Make a wish

the swaying dandelions tall

invite gentle exhalations

letting scattered wishes fall


upon which field shall they rest?

how far from pursed lips,

and a longing heart’s request?


will the seeds find fertile ground

or alight upon a stagnant pond

to miasmal algae green be bound


maybe today, from trembling hand

and with God’s omniscient breath

a seed

shall find roots

uponΒ scorched land


a wish granted


For D, who brought up the topic of childhood dandelion wishes πŸ™‚

  1. I am speechless, Diana! ❀ I can’t really find the words to describe how I feel! I absolutely love it πŸ’–. Everything falls into one beautiful piece! Will the seeds find roots on that scorched land? Will the wish come true for the “child” who gently blew in the breeze? Hope, we need to have hope. This touches my heart deeply. Thank you! Love, D.🌈

    1. I’m so pleased dear D! I never really could forget your post about seeking dandelions in childhood and making wishes. And I thought with your current quandaries you might like a little dedication πŸ˜πŸ’•

  2. Delightful, the sort of sigh this brings forth is the kind you get when on a hot summer’s day you find a patch of dappled shade that catches the breeze from a nearby brook and you drift into the remnant of a favourite dream.

      1. I feel guilty that I don’t visit as often as I’d like to. And you’re still kind and generous. Keep being you. I’ll up my game and visit more cos you widen my smile. πŸ˜ƒβ€β€
