dandelion girl [poems]

image

they call you a weed
frown when you show up to their
perfect gardens
uninvited
don’t let their
limited definition of beautiful
color your flowers
less desirable than the rose
you are the beautiful survivor
evolved to take no shit
to keep spreading your
bright yellow smiles
everywhere


make a wish
dandelion girl
let it go
fluffy seeds
floating in the air
you are invincible
to droughts
and floods 
and poisons alike
immortal dreamer
wish granter
you are
hope

-poems by Larissa Lee

NOTE: these two poems both came from me contemplating how it feels to be a dandelion, and I couldn’t choose two different titles, so… they got posted together.
