Lighthouse Dandelions

Lighthouse Dandelions by Jamie Wyeth 



With a wave from bored fingers
Unrest is brought to the sky
As dandelion seeds float
Taking root in unknown harbors
Aeriel travelers upon the ever moving winds
Fairies dancing within the elongated shadows
Of naked discs and pallid tubes
The Priest's Crown standing proud
Among haters and lovers alike

Dana

    1. Thanks Brian! The Priests crown is what some call the dandelion... it's another lesser known name!
