exist to taunt gardeners
and thrill herbalists.
Grandpa wears a hat
for fear of losing his hair
in a puff of wind.
Only a talented writer and an imaginative soul would find that metaphor from a dandelion. I absolutely love the way your mind works, and the words that spring forth from it! Have a great week, Sarah!

Awww, you are sweet, Bill 🙂 I guess my metaphors spring up like dandelions from the literary mulch in my mind. Then it’s a case of catching those seeds of ideas and writing them down, before they fly away! You have a great week, too, my dear friend.
I laughed at the comparison of a dandelion clock to Grandpa’s hair. Lovely to read on a Monday morning.
I seem to be in your time-zone today, rather than my own, hence my two haiku going live during your Monday morning and my afternoon. I’m pleased that the comparison made you laugh 🙂
I was busy doing a very complicated competition entry earlier on today, with four hours to go to the deadline, so you can imagine that the techno gremlins were working big-time to prevent my submission from happening!
All best wishes,
Love this one, Sarah. Made me laugh too. 🙂
Thank you, Sylvia. I love to make people laugh 😀
These two haiku (haikus?) are fabulous!
Love the Grandpa hair one especially… big smile going on over here.
Good, I like big smiles 😀 I was making up for having not posted a haiku last week.
There ya go…success!
I love this, and it does look like Grandpa hair!
Thank you, Sheila 🙂
I love how these are related: the puff of dandelion and grandpa’s puff of hair. Hehe. I hope you’ve had a great start to your week! 🙂
Thank you, Cynthia. I’m glad you enjoyed my two haiku 🙂 My start to the week hasn’t been too bad, although I’m a bit overtired at the moment. More sunshine and fresh air required, I think.
