Dandelion clock
A whole made of many parts
Working together
on a gentle breeze
fluffy dandelion seeds
did saunter around
His thoughts
Swept me away (again)
In land of
Scintillating (awake)
Surrounded by
Sugary pheromone
So familiar
Yet, a foreign slate
Harder to let go
That stings more
Meeting you in
Dreamland
Where I can be yours?
Dandelion.
EL Borromeo Jun 25
we drink summer in paper cups
and let the warmth reach
the core of our bones
we try to sit still as we hope
for sunny skies to stay afloat

but there are brewing storms
some carrying lovers’ drifting odes
some harbouring none but fleeting cold

let the warmth remain
dandelion days will come again
for seasons may unceasingly change
but love, there’s a Love
that doesn’t ever fade
Erian Rose May 19
we held onto dreams
wider than the Milkyway
dancing under the pouring rain
wishing dandelion buds
into a one-way to center stage

we stayed up past daybreak
conquering our fears
shaping them to laughter
timeless to the melody of
Our wild hearts
I live for dandelions
That bloom between the cracks
Blinding strikes of happiness
Thriving in desecration

Have you ever seen a field of them?
Reclaiming where they may
It nary ceases to amaze
They always seem to say:

“Life continues”
If a flower can retake concrete, then I can make it through too.
Down the hill a procession passed
Of many a merry and gay
Of every and one I ever knew
All white and combed with garlands
Of lily, dandelion, lavander, iris and thyme
Down the hill they passed in dance and music to meet the honey-scented goddess May
Above I floated, bodiless, unseen
Against the stream
My want was in stopping, observing the sight
In first line my friend laughed and chattered, as she held her sister and sweetly kissed her
Mneme!
I cried
She couldn't hear
But the stream pushed and pushed me
Till they were but salty tears
Flowers buried deep,
Rooted in her skin,
Growing in her sunlight,
Drowning in her rain,
Scattering,
Floating their way,
Guided by the wind,
Far away from you,
Never to touch and never to keep.
