The Dancing Dandelion

Oh golden glory
My dear slender tender
Your gracious swaying
Brims me with wonder
Like a ballerina in the ballroom
You, in your dainty way
Make me adore you more, day after day

The little lad comes and rubs his cheeks
against your furry golden delight
The brook stops to get a sneak
of your delicate rhythmic dance
Travelers, artists and poets are astounded
by your intense calmness

By representing the sun, moon and stars
you connect with the celestial bodies
making us ponder about the gross and the subtle
rekindling the thoughts of questioning our own existence

By depicting withering as a beautiful process
You strengthen people invoking hope
You shine along with the blazing sun
and show the way for a brighter perspective
yet to the chosen few, who have an eye to see this glory

Note to the reader: The dandelion is the only flower that represents the 3 celestial bodies of the sun, moon and stars. The yellow flower resembles the sun, the puff ball resembles the moon and the dispersing seeds resemble the stars. 


  1. I thought for a moment that this is one of William Wordsworth's unpublished works discovered now. Pure magic with words. A veritable treat.

    1. Thanks a lot for all the appreciation and motivation.

  2. You slayed it with last two lines Divs! From your first post to this one, everything has changed except for the fact that everytime I read the new one, I smile with a single thought... What a piece Divya!��

    1. Thanks a lot yaar. It's always a delight to receive your comments :D

  3. Wow...Wow... Wow.... What a transformation Divs....You're now truly a DIVA!!!
    Amazing interlace of words with very visually appealing words..... Keep up the fabulous creativity....my dear. A big smile on my face after reading your blog.

    1. WOWWWW Mam! Elated to read your response. Thanks a ton. This means a lot.


  4. First comment,the way it is put across is as if the Dandelion has spoken to you in person with all her feelings. Speechless after the deep words .

    Secondly, the flowers are going to make a queue asking you to write something about them. Lucky Dandelion.

    Way to go.. keep the creative instincts up and let the world experience more such blissful masterpieces from you.
