This morning in the garden
I wondered about wild mini daisies

Why are they
in my yard

is it like the great dandelion epidemic of 1978

Beautiful cut weeds: Daisy Fleabane

In the front yard
a toddler picks a flower
for their mother
A dandelion

The mom accepts the flower
but leaves it on the porch
when they go in for lunch

Days later
Forgotten the wilted petals
dry and turn to seed
blowing away in
the afternoon breeze

Months later
My neighbor wonders
how their lawn could be infested
with YELLOW flowers

Across the street
I smile


One thought on “This morning

Any thoughts on the above post are appreciated! Otherwise, I think I must be living under a rock.
