Dandelions

This poem by Sarah Russell spoke to me. She made every word count. I believe you will find it a keeper.

Just like the dandelion, each of us has the power to define who we are regardless of the labels that others may try to stick on us.

Sarah Russell Poetry

“A weed is a flower growing in the wrong place.”
                            George Washington Carver

Spike-haired, brass-blonde,
they invade the bluegrass suburbs
where blades form a passive sameness
if tended as intended.  They strut
across the green of everyday —
strumpets in tattered leafy skirts,
stiletto roots — bestowing downy favors
on the summer breeze.

– Sarah Russell
