Dandelion Wishes

by Kitty Cat Lady   Mar 7, 2018


A sphere of fluff is all that's left
To rest my hopes upon
This precious flower full of seed
To save a conclusion foregone

For some it is but just a weed
A pest among the beauts
And yet you cannot keep it down
It's strength is in the roots

And so my dreams hitch to the breeze
As I blow and make a wish
As new life becomes airborne
I long for better times than this.

    Oh gosh, I didn't realize how much I needed to read this until I did...and now my eyes are watering and my heart is aching. What a sweet, beautiful write!! Reminds me of my childhood, when I used to make wishes on dandelions and blow them into the wind. I remember so clearly watching that fluff floating away, hoping with all of my heart they would let the sky know about my dreams <3 Okay, I'll stop rambling before this comment gets way too long, but it just struck a nostalgic chord in me, lol. I absolutely love this, and I hope all your wishes have been heard loud and clear!! Keep your eyes on the horizon and watch them unfold :)

    I saw the beauty of the wish, amongst the determination of the weed.
    Beautifully done.

    Kitty, if there is a word in any dictionary which means better than better you deserve that. Every single wish of yours come true and your rhyming, your poems are as usual phenomenal.

    Miss Kitty, I just love this. Yes, it is a weed but it has beauty in its own way and it's sturdy and stubborn. Sounds a lot like you, you can do this! You will bloom, again and again. You will set down roots and flourish. I'm that same weed, set adrift but landed and grew all over again. Hugs -
