dandylion fields

yesterday was good,
every bloom was blooming every one
and the birds all called out

up not far north
the fields full of dandylions in different stages of life
adulthood and old age,
full of yellow
and the round perfect puff of fairy clocks,
just waiting to tell the time,

after something
high way and super malls,
dispite it all a family of geese
hmmh, this looks like a good spot...

i am thrilled at this encroachment
of nature with its sweet nerve
and awesome resilience
trying to keep it beautiful,
dispite our uglification

one rule, no pesticides on lawns
has changed the landscape,

and now if you excuse me
i must pick a few dandylion leaves
for tea
