Ink of a Dandelion #NaPoWriMo2021 ~ Day 6

 I am an unkept garden.

A dandelion wild weed

finding a place to grow

among stones.


Yellow hair fading

to white tufts hasn’t

softened my brash or

kept me from dancing

on music notes only I can hear.


Aging into silence…not hardly…

slipping away gracefully…never…


I’m a million star seeds

waiting to grow a universe.


Night may hound me, chase me

to the grave, but what wisdom

I’ve gained will remain in inky words

scattered in the wind.

"I'm a million star seeds waiting to grow a universe." What a fantastic line! I love this poem, Susie. I suspect we will still be tapping out words in our last moments......."But wait! I just have to finish this stanza!" Smiles.
