the warm spring wind
gives me life
no one desires to defend;

they call me Weed,
stomping me down
to the level of Crabgrass
and Poison Oak,

although I harm none
with my meager
existence.

I can grant your wishes
as your cold breath
sends shivers down my
stem; I can

thrive on the dream-fields
of children, who still
call me Flower.
Exercise from my Creative Writing class... we had to write from an interesting POV. She gave us a few choices, one of which was a weed.

It may not be there anymore. If not, it may return later.
I switch lit a lot, though visual art is featured once a month (usually :D).

This is gorgeous, love. I remember being infatuated with dandelions when I was little, and I did call them flowers until someone told me otherwise. And I didn't realize, when I blew the seeds from the ones, that they were also dandelions. Thank you for the flashbacks!
