I AM  ( Prompt#28 dandelion)

"A weed is no more than a flower in disguise."
- James Russell Lowe

I am a lonely dandelion

A flower growing in the wrong places

Some say I am just a weed

I see myself as a flower of beauty

I am yellow like the sun

I have a long green stem

It is green just like the green leaves and grass

I grow in the grass on lawns

No one wants me there

Others find ways to get rid of me

The sun shines down on me

Rain showers pour down on me

The life of a dandelion is short lived

In a while I become like a soft feathery puff

Children and grownups

Pick me and blow me to the wind

Scattering in the wind, so long I am gone
