Dandelion Seeds in the Breeze

A poem about time and the fact that sooner or later, death comes to all of us.

 

I watch the wind.

But the wind is still,

No flowers dance in the breeze

Or bow to the air.

 

I watch the dandelions.

But the seeds stay planted,

They shake in my breath

And jump when I blow.

 

I watch the sun.

The slow lazy rays,

Washing the green grass

The dew from morning, gone.

 

I watch these days pass.

How seasons change,

Blur into one another

And how many years I have left.
