It’s true…the wildflowers show that where there is a will, there is a way. Even popping up in the cracks in the cement!
Very true, thank you so much.
I love it! Blessings, Natalie 🙂
Thank you Natalie, I appreciate this. 🙂

WHAT POETIC BIODIVERSITY!!! 🙂
Thank you so much Jonathan. 🙂
Thank you Gilly. 🙂
It’s amazing where wildflowers can grow. Cracks in the sidewalk, between rocks, etc. Really brings that last line home when you think about it.
You are absolutely right and thank you very much my friend. 🙂
How lovely Dom!
Thank you Patty. 🙂
In Swedish, we call people who have survived childhoods full of hardship and misery “Maskrosbarn” which translates into “Dandelion children” – which just goes to show the hardiness of the flowers we at times call weeds.
Very interesting Anna thank you for sharing this, I had never heard of this word, but it really is quite fitting. Maybe those we consider weeds are more precious than the flowers that we dearly treasure.
Lovely poem, Dom🙋
Thank you so much. 🙂
Hi Dom- this is totally off topic – but – have you seen this prompt site yet? It has a poetic form I hadn’t heard of yet called the Puente – you should check it out. http://www.poetryjaam.blogspot.se/2014/06/bridges-puente-poetic-form.html
Plus … dVerse is doing “repetition” — still a day yet — and they’ve mentioned rondeaus, rondelets, ghazals, villanelles, etc.
Thank you for sharing this with me, I do subscribe to dVerse, but only recently, the other one I had not heard of and will check it out. I have been a bit tied up with work and have not had a great deal of time to write, hopefully things will slow down a bit so that I can get back to writing, writing from prompts and learning some new forms.
Yes – I’d noticed that you haven’t written as much – let’s hope your work schedule lessens!
All the best —
I’m back home now although I’m still not feeling the inspiration flowing within. I will continue to struggle through this and will hopefully be back to normal soon. 🙂
Sending lots of positive vibes in your direction!!!!!
Thank you Jen, I certainly can use them. 🙂
