Wishes in Waiting

Close Up of Dandelion by Sharee Basinger


A thousand wishes 
Dance on the head 
Of a dandelion, 
Waiting for some dreamer
To breathe them into life.


~~~This poem was written for a prompt over at Poetry Jam asking us to examine an object in detail.

This is nice, Mary. I love to hold up such a dandelion and blow. Definitely each one holds a LOT of wishes.
