Watching the Wind

Prompt from Poetic Asides: paying attention

She sits, listening
to a world lately
weaned off winter,
bare toes tickling
dandelion stems,
resting in the shade of
trees reaching sunward,

feasting on lilac and
sipping honeysuckle,
eyes mirroring the sky,
blue looking into blue,
watching the wind
breathe-
flutter-
blow.

  5. I love this one. We have an abundance of dandelions thanks to a wet winter and they make me happy. Wish we were weaned off winter, though. She slipped back in over the weekend.
