The Danger of Dandelions
Yesterday they were yellow,
peppercorns of color across the lawn,
counterpoint to the green.
Weeds to some.
Flowers to others.
Dangerous things for those that hate them,
because in a day, just one day,
They become puffballs,
hundreds of seeds,
waiting for the next good breeze.
About this poem
The average dandelion flower has between 180 to 400 seeds. Not all of them will find a spot that is conducive for growth. But many will.
It is my belief that when we actively respect and love, we are dandelion seeds. 1st Corinthians 13:13 – “So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
