Dandelion

Golden Dandelion

Carried by the wind

A seed blown with wishful breath

Gold crown manifests

Make a Wish

Dandelion Puff in Forest

In the forest green

Silky circle of lace is seen

Picking it I glean

A feeling that’s so serene

Suddenly I’m queen

Filled with wishes umpteen

A magical scene

Filled will sunshine sheen

Parachuting seeds careen

Wish Catcher

dandelion  seed head
She jumped so high!

Dandelion seed floating by.

“Just caught a wish!” she said

I was out shopping yesterday and as I was walking thru the parking lot to my car I saw a young lady suddenly make a giant leap into the air!

“I got it!” she exclaimed to her friends with her.

 I guess they all noticed my wondering, questioning look as I passed by them because the young lady said ” I just caught a wish!”  

She opened her hand to show a dandelion seed.

“It’s magical” said her friend. 

This moment made me smile as I remembered my childhood days of making wishes and blowing dandelion puffs. 

Magical garden

A field of Dandelion puffs

A childhood delight

Sleep Writing

In sleep
My mind writes verse
I wish I could capture
Such beautiful poetic lines
Awake

Tonight I fell asleep before writing my poem to post. I kept dreaming of poems and writing some in my sleep. Yet, when I woke up I could not remember any of them. I wish I could have,  as in my dreams they seemed to be very good. Thus, the reason I wrote this poem.

Thank You to All My Followers!

advent logoChristmas is a special time for me!
Yet I know for some it may not be.
And so at this time of the year,
When my heart is full of cheer,
I want to also acknowledge you,
Who may not be feeling as I do.
Though my wish is bright and clear,
For a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
I want to offer these thoughts too,
Of Happy Holidays and Seasons Greetings to you.
And even for those who don’t celebrate,
I do not hesitate,
To wish you well in all you do,
And offer my thanks to you.
I appreciate all who follow me,
And where ever you may be,
I send my heartfelt greetings,
and hope for many more poetic meetings!
