Dandelion



yellow like the sun
mane in bloom the lion waits,
until parachutes

I think you should write a book, with illustrations.

Love. This.

Barb said...

You are so gifted at writing these beautiful word pictures, Alexis! I will never look at a dandelion now without thinking of your poem.

Jodi said...

Brilliant! Really. And I agree with JoAnn.

The Empress said...

OK. A book is needed. With pictures.

Paul C said...

I really like the several vivid images.

Annie said...

I like the energy in this poem, from stillness to action, and how the final word, parachutes, is used so effectively as a verb. I like your illustration, too!

Alexis said...

Everyone, thank you so much for reading and for commenting!

I love this one. I love the dandelion and posted about them, too. People need to think of their beautiful stages as the sun, moon and stars.
