Dandelion Confessions

by Ben Pickard   Oct 7, 2016


When lilies and dahlias
thrived on my grief -
made roots with my wrongs -
the dandelions listened
with a delicacy only they
could ever assume.

For when I was done,
they stole nothing but a
simple breath from me
and each of my indiscretions

floated

away

on

the

wind.
