Written by Richard AnkersApril 24, 2014 Dandelion Weeping Golden radiance, gone Feathered, time to fly Weep for your brothers Wave your sisters goodbye Tears shed, only normal Pooling at seedlings’ feet Floral parent cries Dandelion weeping Share this:FacebookTwitterStumble MeWhatsAppTumblrLinkedInRedditTelegramPinterestPocketPrintEmailLike this:Like Loading... 41 thoughts on “Dandelion Weeping” Your poem is beautiful but that photo … mesmerizing. Reply Thanks, I took it this morning 🙂 Reply Is there anything you cannot excel at? Getting published If it were that easy, you wouldn’t want it so much. 😉 Ah, is that it? Yes — I believe so. You are very wise for one so young 😉 I have had a few good Jedi masters. 😉 They’re not really masters of anything unless they have a good pair of shades to wear. Well, I know of at least two of my “masters” that fit that image perfectly. 🙂 Two, you say. Then that’s why you’re doubly wise. I’m just doubly blessed. Good Beautiful poem, Richard! Reply Thanks, Skye 🙂 Reply Fab imagery Richard and funny because I was only just looking in the meadow of a back garden that we have and noticing how many dandelions had turned. Reply Turned!!!!!!! Sounds like they’re zombies!!!! 😉 Reply I do believe they are – there’s an army of them out there and all lined up to come and get me!! Yikes LOL! 🙂 OH what a gorgeous perspective, Richard 🙂 So breathtaking!!! Reply Thank you 🙂 Reply WHOA!!!!! Richard!!! Par Excellent!!! xx Amy Reply Thanks, Amy, not quite a Pinkrose quality photo, but not bad. Reply STOP!! Are YOU serious??? My jaw dropped. For real!!!! Oh YOU!!! What???! LOL When are you going to see yourself as GOOD? Like the rest of us do? Hmmmm….???! Oh, probably never. Leaves room for improvement that way 😉 Well. Mr. Richards. IF you do not LOVE what YOU do, and SEE how good you are, just how do you think others will??? It all begins with SELF. When you radiate out to all the world that you LOVE what you do, that is FELT, and so success comes to your very door. It just happens. GRIN! Lecture over! MUAH! Now all those capital letters are in my head but the order’s all mixed up. LOL GRIN! This is truly wondrous–such beautiful description, I can’t find apt words for it. Reply The power of raindrops Reply Both within, and without. Richard, this is so good. I have no doubt that someday (perhaps soon) publishers will be seeking you out like crazy. Hang in there. Your writing is powerful and meaningful. Reply Thank you, I appreciate that 🙂 Reply Weep for your brothers, wave your sisters goodbye… such a wonderful line. Beautiful photo R and being published… as much as I wanted to be picked up (I mean my book) by a publisher, I got tired of ‘wonderful write but not our genre right now’… I E published. I have sold about 100 and have possibly made 100.00, but as us writers know it’s not the money, I rejoice in the fact that people are out there reading my words. So go for it, get your words out there 🙂 Reply I want a publisher and by Jove I’ll get one LOL Reply zipped then Amazing poem, I do love it! Do you know that the word “dandelion” has a french etymology (dent de lion, lions teeth). The word in french is not poetical (pissenlit – difficult to write something with :-)) – Thanks again for sharing such beautiful words. Kind regards FGM Reply I didn’t know that. Thanks for the kind words 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
