weed thoughts

Poetry Jam
Dandelions

Weed Re Defined

A weed is a plant seed
just in the wrong place.

A field of dandelions is beautiful indeed
but in my front yard a disgrace.

A pile of time challenges condemned
but with a prayer a perfect solution.

problem is only a life challenge
with the wrong mind expectation.

When you define it as wrong
it may stay that way

When you saver it as perfect
you'll want it to stay

When parts of life situations
are falling apart.
With
redefinition and reconsideration
they may all
just be falling into place

Weed or flower
it is all in your mind
Rethink the definition
of the




weed, flower, and seed
so then
that new orientation
will

redefine your life with high speed!

  1. The second stanza made me smile. I like the idea that our appreciation of dandelions, and of course so many other things as well, is all in the mind.

  3. Explaining why children love them! They are using a broader definition, which is inclusive, not our more refined, exclusive definition. Ah, to be a child.

  6. I really like this idea, "A problem is only a life challenge
    with the wrong mind expectation." Hopefully, I'll remember that when I hit my next bump in the road so it won't seem as bad!

  7. I like the idea that a weed is a plant seed in the wrong place. I do think this applies to dandelions. They are beautiful...in the right setting. I like redefinition and reconsideration.

  9. "Rethink the definition" I had never thought about it quite that way before - but that is R-E-A-L-L-Y sound advice - for a lot of things.
