Never Give up

Large rock, dandelions

Are you

Facing a rock

Being seen as unwanted

Seeing your chance for wishes

Cut down


They had the opportunity to

Become airbourne

Never give up

Stand firm

Dig in

Let your faith grow

Deep, be tenacious, for

Someday, someone will stop


And see

Your beauty and your true worth

For we all have a purpose

That’s waiting to be


Double Butterfly Cinquain

Today as I was out walking I stopped near this big rock where I saw two dandelions blooming and one that had gone to seed lying down on the ground as if crushed, probably by the landscapers mower hitting it.

It intrigued me enough to snap a picture and also was inspiration for this poem.

  1. Good one Leona. I have a friend who I haven’t seen for a very long time, but when she came to Canada from Guyana, she had never seen dandelions before and when she saw them in such profuse blossoming she thought they were beautiful. It’s true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And though I may not know what it is, I am sure the dandelion has some purpose in God’s economy or He wouldn’t have created it. And they are very colorful and attract attention.

    1. It reminds me of this quote “If no one had ever seen a flower, even a dandelion would be the most startling event in the world.” Not sure who said that but it’s true!
      Personally, I have always thought God created Dandelions for the children to pick as free bouquets for their mothers. 😊
