I’m a dandelion puff
blow me and I will scatter…
on the outside I’m a little rough
but on the inside
is the stuff that matters…
hold me gently by the stem
and make a wish to the gods above
or maybe you speak to the ones
residing below —
either way, I’m listening to you…
silence is not a sin
and the quiet is not an abyss
it is the tune of held attention
the song of patience —
the greatest prayers
are spoken in whispers…
don’t agitate me with…
