You creep in my yard.
A persistent weed that clings –

They do have a life way passed nature
I like the words very much and the image is beguiling. They’re almost incongruent.
Hmm. Being odd and out of place are my specialties. 😊. Thanks!
I’m with you on that on. Odd and out of place is the way to be!
Be like a dandelion, grasshopper 😊
Brilliant words, Dear Poem, but I must add…some person’s weeds are another’s flower and dandelions are very useful for wildlife, both the early nectar and the seeds are used and relied upon by many creatures. The flower is in action most of the year and not many are…end of lecture!! xx

I agree — dandelions are often marginalized. Many species of insects (or spiders) use the dandelion for a variety of purposes, especially bees and other winged entities.
Thank you! We actually have an area in our yard where we allow Dandelions to grow. Our two rabbits love them.
Glad U like them better than U let on in the clever haiku.
Haha! I don’t think I’ll be speaking negatively about another weed ever again on WP 😀
Sorry, for Dear Poem, please read Poet!! Funny how one makes these mistakes and just not notice…trying to be too quick I presume..I shall try and mend my faulty ways.
No worries, dear Paula! I’m just happy to see you visiting my blog. I knew what you meant. ❤️💋
My yellow blossom
Infects like fallen sunshine
Your mind and your grass
Lovely haiku! I like how you’ve played with the idea of dandelions being infectious to humans — reminds me of the movie, The Happening.
Shiny and chrome! (I can say this to you now, Rose, confident that you’ll know what I mean.)
Haha! You really love Mad Max: Fury Road; you weren’t kidding, BunK! 😃
Haha! I will take a liberty and just add in that I, too, love Mad Max: Fury Road! 🙂
I see you’ve been busy writing haiku poems! Great work, Michaela.
Thank you, Rose! 🙂 It’s really as a result of my blog that I have been adding in haiku poems; I hadn’t written them before then. Now I have a lot of fun with them. 🙂
A yellow patch of creeps makes a lovely addition to any garden! (or yard).
Creeps also make fantastic lawn ornaments! 😃
So do pink flamingos!
Meh, been there; done that! I find creeps all over our neighborhood, so might as well take advantage of them 😃
Thank you for visiting and leaving a kind word!
I will not see again in the same way the dandelions…
Haha! Never underestimate the power of a dandelion😘
A stalker as pretty as this might as well be tenacious. 🙂
Fly’s photograph really captures the best angle of the Dandelion — he’s a monster magician. 😉. Thanks so much, Somali. 💐
A wonderful Haiku Rose.
Be careful of that Japenese knotweed. 😕
Thanks darling! I’ve never heard of a Japanese knotweed. Are they stalkerish weeds, as well?
They certainly are.
If you get those dudes in your garden
you’re in for a big heap of pain.
Look them up. 😟
Oh, dear, now I may just have to get some! They sound like fun — of course, that’s why you know all about them! Lol. Thanks for the tip, Alan. 😊
Reblogged this on KCJones.
Thanks so much for the reblog. 💋
I’ve never thought about dandelions as stalkers. You make an excellent point! ❤
Dandelions just sit and creep around — stalkers, all right! Lol. Have you ever had dandelion leaves in a salad, Merrie? Delicious! 💝
I have, yes and I’ve enjoyed them very much.
I’m glad you enjoy the positives of the dandelion, Rose! 🙂 And your haiku of the creepy dandelion is fun!
Aw, thanks Michaela 🙂 xo
The little creepers just want to live long enough to fulfill your wishes.
Ha! And what would those wishes be?
Only you know the answer to that. I just hope you weren’t keeping them in your hat.
I keep my wishes where I’d never lose them 😊
A gentleman never asks.
Oh, darn — you’re one of those! 😔
I never suggested it. I’m sure you keep your wishes warm in your fiery heart.
Haha! Of course
Love them, don’t mind them creeping 🙂
Same here 🙂 Please get better soon! 🌾 🌺 🌻
Thank you! xx
Inese, do you allow poets to use your photos and then link to your blog? Would that be okay?
Of course. Other websites use my pictures too, I don’t mind if there is a link, only grateful for spreading the word 🙂
Wonderful! I know you’re not fond of monsters and dark poems, so I’ll be light and sweet! — or at least I’ll try 😆 Thank you!!
Haha why, I would love to see which of my pictures goes with a monster poem 🙂
😀 I’ll be kind. Promise.
Haha…my husband would love this; he despises dandelions. I, on the other hand, have a certain fondness for them–they endure. Love it, Rose. 🙂
Ah, I enjoy them; to a point. I did make them the bad guys, but we always need a villain if we often times write dark. Your words will endure, Cathy. What an amazing writer you are! I know you have a new story posted and will visit tonight. The sun is out today and is calling to me. Thank you so much! xo
I think you are an amazing writer. I’m glad I found your blog. 🙂
Within the limits of the classical/deterministic 😉 framework, this post is a fine account of dandelions. I should link to it respectfully in my forthcoming post that will consider dandelions in the quantum/libertarian 😉 framework I prefer. Need to work on my pix B4 posting.
Ah, my sweet, political, mad scientist, I look forward to your post and link. xo
These little buggers are all over, making me wonder, now, who really put them there and is watching me!! Yet I actually don’t mind them. To watch the transformation from youth to aging, allowing for regrowth as the wind carries them, just amazes me. Great write, Rose!!
Ah, I can put your comments to music then dance to them! 😀 Thank you, Dorinda. xo
a colorful invasion…..

It may be creepy, but is gorgeous 😀
Otherwise, your words are very true, Rose
