NaPoWriMo 8 – flowers. Number 1.

Dandelion

Piss-a-bed
Dandelion
Gaudy as
A thumb-print

Lion-toothed
Dandelion
Springing up
Undaunted

Golden lads
And lasses
Dancing in
The verges

White headed
Dandelion
Ready for
The blowing

Tiny white
Parachutes
Drift across
The garden

Even though I garden, I have a grudging respect for dandelions.
