Silverpuff Blossom and Seeds   Leave a comment

Friday with Friends & Molino Basin to Prison CampSilverpuff Blossom and Seeds — Image by kenne

When picturing a wildflower
I see the blossom
not the seeds.

Picture a dandelion
a pretty yellow wildflower
not named after its
annoying seeds.

Picture a silverpuff
a pretty yellow wildflower
with toothed rays
radiating star-like points

only to be named after its
beautiful seeds —
a secondhand blossom.
