Dandelion This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   The white fluff of feathers stood

out among the green grass

and waited patiently

to be taken

and blown

To have nothing left but the

green stem that holds it

together. I picked

it up and blew

until I was

Out of breath and watched

the white seeds scatter

and fly with the wind

to infinity and

leave behind

The stem to which it was

joined. The fluffy, light

seeds floated in space

until the wind

ceased

Leaving the seeds to fall to

the ground - to disappear

back into the landscape
