D is for Dandelion

Dandelion: a common small, bright yellow wild flower that has a lot of long, thin petals arranged in a circular pattern around a round centre.

Minotaurs trampled 
the woods searching for their foe. 
Bloodlust in their eyes. 

Then, a golden bud 
called the fiercest warrior, 
He watched her in awe. 

Flower and champion 
Promised everlasting love,
Lingering as one.

Dandelion turns 
Into seeds to touch the stars 
Where her love now lies.

Senryu 4 of 26 I´ll be doing this april to participate in #AtoZChallenge, #NaPoWriMo and #CampNaNoWriMo. Did you like it? Don´t be shy, leave a comment. I´d love if you add a blog hop so I can visit your post, too.

This is my Spanish haiku counterpart: D de Diente de león. Why, do you ask? My wonderful crew, #NaNoTribuMX started a micro stories challenge in Spanish this month. (We´re still voting the words we will use this month).

Did you know? Today is National Dandelion´s Day! Let´s spread the word. Any ideas to celebrate today?

The team’s theme of the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge this year is:
ACCOMPLISHING YOUR DREAMS, AND THE DUALITY OF 22; to see all cool bloggers participating this challenge, you can click on the Master List of #AtoZChallenge.

Today’s NaPoWriMo‘s prompt: to write a poem about a mythical person or creature doing something unusual.

If you are participating on these challenges, I wish you good luck and lots of success. 😀

  1. What a lovely ending, didn’t expect that! I didn’t know there was a dedicated day for dandelions but rightly so, they are amazing: they can live anywhere, they can be used as herbs (or as crowns), and they aren’t bad to look at either 🙂

  2. Through the years I would always see dandelions in my parents’ yard in Tennessee. Of course I always blew the seeds when I’d see the flowers in that state. In my current small yard in Los Angeles I see maybe three dandelions a year.
