Be A Dandelion

Tenacious

Like a dandelion

Persistent

Determined

Holding strongly on to life in

Any circumstance

January

My Red Camellia plant in bloom 1-27-2020
My Red Camellia plant in bloom 1-27-2020

The sun sleeps.

Rain drizzles upon

Decaying leaves.

Misty morn.

In the bleakness, a patch of red.

Camellia blooms.

Shadorma

My Camellia plant offers a bright spot of color on this dreary January day.

Are You?

Dandelion growing in cracked dry ground

Falling through life’s cracks?

Or are you a ground breaker?

Growing in the hard places,

Blooming where you’re planted,

In spite of dry times,

Letting nothing hold you back,

From reaching your goal?

Modeling tenacity,

Like teeming dandelions?
