Poetry Friday: Blue Skies

Blue Skies

If it were hard to grow dandelions,

my showpiece of a yard would be overrun
by gardeners and gawkers.

The general hubbub,
the flash photography,
and the ensuing interview requests

would interfere mightily
with my ability
to sit on my porch
and watch them grow.

Thank goodness
that the spring sunshine

makes everything easy.

Love. It. My garden is beautiful right now and as I race through the day, I take time to stop and peek and feel refreshed.
