Dandelion (A Study of Self)

a turbulent
sea of
vibrant,
yellow florets
grow with
natural dissipation

they never
consider that
some
find them to
be a blight upon
the civilized
palate-
an irksome weed
requiring
annihilation

despite this notion
of noxious
impropriety, there
lies a genus of
prescriptive
healing
properties

the seedhead,
a magic
wish maker, is
cunning in its
defiance- a
light wisp of
breath
scatters the
tiny pods

each land without
ceremony,
anticipating
fertile
ground with
which to germinate

it never contemplates
whether it
is beautiful or useful-
it simply continues
to grow.
Eerie
