With One Final Breath

“When he shall die,

Take him and cut him out in little stars,

And he will make the face of heaven so fine

That all the world will be in love with night

And pay no worship to the garish sun.” 

― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

With one final breath
A precious life is gone
Scattered with billowing winds
A dandelion’s fate
Left to chance
Where it will fall and land
A spirit seed planted
Into a bright new soul
To grow, to thrive, made whole again
As a new world opens up, begins.

  3. My hopes

    Where will the flying seed alight
    We know not the whims of the wind
    Wish for a pretty garden path
    By a green bench where angels rest
    Or children playing in the sun

    Such is life, dispersal assisted no less but still the seed will thrive in a new environment! One cannot but wonder how nature takes its course and further the progeny as far as the eye could see! Wonderful write Linda!

  5. This makes me feel my dandelion child free in the stars to seed light into my spirit to help me out of my darkness.
