Dandelion fairies

I watch and wonder

how many wishes

dandelion fairies hold

in their feathered pockets –


I watch and wonder

as they drift, lift and fall

in the air, on the wind,

if they ever grow too heavy –


I watch and wonder

what happens to the wishes,

the love stories and winning lottery tickets,

ice-creams and the return of someone missing –


I watch and wonder

if I am a fool for believing in nothing

but this – the foretold power

of a blossoming weed.


In response to day 15: wishes, #rainasmprompts
