Dandelion Days

bydemure101©

Dandelion days are not those weeks
when grassland wakes in yellow splendour to
another spring. They're not the lambs first yards
on dizzy limbs when sun comes warm and bright
across the eastern ridge, when moist new wings
attempt their coloured flight and all the world
is splashed with diamond facets, blue and green

and brilliant like a first impression, good
to go outside and take all in, and climb
the hopeful slope and smile – no, those are not
my dandelion days, that one short run
of waking to the world and letting go
before life turned around and I forgot
the dandelion days I used to know.
