"A reminder to us all"
When the weight of the world feels so heavy
you could collapse,
remember the dandelion.
Often mistaken as a weed
its roots run deep,
difficult to uproot from the ground.
And its head-
a perfect sphere.
Comprised of seeds that can
a field of life.
(with the mere breath of a child)
A reminder to us all,
that even on the days we feel the darkest,
like a weed being tussled and spread and
destroyed by the winds of this world.
There are seeds of beauty
in all of us.
An opportunity to regenerate and bloom
