The Clueless Life of a Dandelion

The wind swayed
Plucking the seeds off the dandelion like little string
And one by one, they flew away
Dancing their little dance and fluttering their little wings


They began their adventure
Towards the never ending rays of the sun
So destined, so hopeful, a splendor
The most satisfying run


Carried off by a breeze
They went North, towards the cold polar ice
Shivering, they shook no longer at ease


The sky cluttered with snow, giving them all a strong blow
And quietly they slept
Till the day they could grow

I really love the title of this poem, even if it didn't provide the connection between the message and itself that I thought it would. I'm a fan of your rhyming, and the shift in pattern halfway through was very beautiful as well.
