Marking Time

The Dandelion Clock

A dandelion clock catches my eye. I must have seen a thousand and noticed none. Until now. I stop. Look. Contemplate. How do they tell the time? 

Watching the dandelion clock

Marking time, your spidery hands
taking minutes into hours. Fresh winds
and rose bud lips lift your helicopter pips
to a new space where you rest. Lightly
sleeping in the sun, until the spring
comes to raise a golden alarm.
