As kids, we’d truly believe the blown seeds of a dandelion would go far to a place where wishes would be granted. And so the summer days would be full of wishes gliding in the air. It used to be a magical time – the lazy summer days to dream and wish and wait for it to come true. Those times, when dandelions were the messengers for wishes…
TO FLY in the air To pluck at the stars To have a candy palace Why, nothing seemed bizarre! Wishes wishes, oh so many Blow the dandelion, and ask for any
A HANDFUL of diamonds Prince charming on a stallion Be sought after My charm be my medallion
WISHES wishes, oh so many Blow the dandelion, and ask for any! Not smart but be wise A true friend or a few
BE A kid again, that Innocence like dew Wishes wishes, not too many Blow the dandelion, hoping for an epiphany!
(The above picture shows summer skies of 2016 in Mackinac Island, Michigan. While the island and the waters and the people, all earthbound, were enjoying the the sunshine from down below, a dozen kites took flight and dared for the skies…)
The Sun is back
With all its might
Flying to the earth
At the speed o’ light
The liquid sky trembles
It’d pined all night
One fervent embrace n’
Countless stars of delight!
Yesterday was sunny, although not comfortably warm and a park nearby glowed. The stream reflected the abundant sunlight. I could watch the light dance on the shining blue waters for hours- it was so magical!
These pictures were taken to capture that magic. But could one ever really do that, fully?
