    wishing on dandelion puffs!!! 😉

  2. This is wonderful Melanie, whimsical, adorable and it makes me smile =)

  3. When I was a kid I was told that dandelions could tell the time. The number of blows it took to clear the seeds gave you the hour. I was asthmatic, so I was permanently stuck at 47 o’clock.

  4. You paint a picture of true innocent glory. Ahhh…to be a kitten again…I mean child. Reowr?

  5. Beautiful poem…alive. And yes…to be a kitten again as well…batting at flowers.

  6. Here, world, here is a haiku to make you feel good 🙂

  7. Love the playfulness in this and the capture of a child’s spirit

  8. This personifies summer days like this are cherished!
