"What makes a flower a flower? And why doesn't the dandelion qualify?" -From my poem "Dandelions"


One handprint on the wall
Not sure how it got there
No idea at all
But it looked rather lonely
The handprint on the wall
So I covered my hands in sunscreen
And then there were more
Everyone followed what I had just done
Look at what that brick wall has become
A symbol, a memory of all who have come
Now the handprint wasn’t lonely
There was no longer just one
