Flying Seeds

For in

this world

i shall

not use

the forlorn

as a noun.

For i have

been punished

going against

the cardboard

rules of speaking.

my throat

is small

my shadow


for what

does it speak?

as i walk against it.

Passing singing

empty yards.

with blank eyes charmless…

for i have nothing.

even after winter

the grass will come back.

as i dig

into the dirt

where does

resilience end

as i string

the beads of memories.

i will

be like the dandelion

suddenly appearing

a jovial yellow

submerged into crowds

then disappearing

in swarm of white

flying seeds.

One of the best I have ever read, however, I am sure you will mind all sorts of Weed-Killers. I love dandelions  and it is a sad fact that many do not know it is an effective and no 1 diuretic in herbal medicine.

This is grand.  I absolutely LOVE the last stanza.  You are a real poet!  --David
