Yup, it's going to be a sad poem week. But that is good, we need to explore that. I guess. Your poem is poignant.

I really like the imagery of the dandelion puffs; they so easily desert the mother plant with only a slight breeze.

"Someones dearest wish" only a puff away. If only they had known. Simply moving!

This photo really GOT me and then to read the softness of the words "dandelion puffs" What contrast.
