Have you ever watched a dandelion grow? Though just a weed, and though usually despised by all who see it in their lawn, I marvel at how a small green stem with a little bulb sprouts a cute little flower. And hey, if you’re looking for a way to make someone feel special, theres nothing wrong with a little romantic dandelion picking. My little sisters do it all the time, I think its pretty cute. But regardless of how romantic a yellow dandelion can be, it isn’t the flower thats the most intriguing part. after a short while, a dandelion will transform it’s petals into tiny seed pods, characterizing the white little puffballs I am seeing right now. Which brings me to my actual point.
A dandelion takes its time growing and maturing into something pretty darn cool. It doesn’t look like much at first, but give it a little time, and its gonna bloom. But its not until it turns white that you can see its true beauty. Its amazing how something so small has the ability to change so much. But its not without its risks. One strong gust of wind, one forceful breath, and its gone, and all your left with is wishes and an empty stem. So I guess this is a warning to dandelions everywhere. Choose carefully the spot you want to grow. Its also a shout out to superglue, dandelions could really benefit from that, and it might save a heartbreak or two. This is also a petition, asking for a regional airport to be built in the friend zone, so guys like me can find a way out. Thanks.
This wish is for you. Make it count.
