life cycle


The dandelion

Blooms in gold then self-destructs

Scattering its seeds

reternal life


Pretend you’re a leaf

Waiting to be born each spring

As life, fresh and green

Weather summer’s days

Take your beauty sleep at night

Growing full and lush

Feel the seasons change

You begin to show your age

Autumn’s crisp colors

Become ground cover

Transforming into compost

Winter feeds the trees

Root systems find you

You journey to a new home

You’re reborn in spring
