dandelions & pink memories

dandelions & pink memories

A Poem by Lyn Anderson

the sky is quiet



dot the green grass

like sunny spectators

lining up for the big show

assembled patiently

with their sisters

laden in fuzzy white coats

all dressed up

and no where to go ...


they're just


for the

wind to blow.

pink memories

clog my mind

cotton candy




love notes

whisper in the red moon


the sky quiets me

when I can't

think of anything

but running back

to you ...


pencil me into your notebook

and I'll sign on the dotted line

the one that says I'm yours

and you're mine ...


I draw you in my mind

fill me with your pen ...

What a nice way of looking at those dandelions. I enjoyed this scattering of romantic love notes across the page.

Thank you. I was, quite literally, looking at a field of dandelions
Wonderful poetry shared dear Lyn.
"pencil me into your notebook
and I'll sign on the dotted line
the one that says I'm yours
and you're mine …"
The above lines sweet and needed. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

you are too kind, thank you
ohhhhhhhhh boy...poets in love! danger danger danger ;))) that is the best attitude on dandelions I have ever heard ... I tend to sound the alarm when I see their armies rising up ;) the contrast with pink is delicious ... interesting you speaker has tasted too much ... your red moon morning skies are also very interesting and dramatic for me ..red skies in the morning...sailors take warning ;) your verses are like bursts of inspiration taken down at different times on scraps of this and that so as not to forget them ... the overall feeling of a lasting love ... through all the different aspects of a heart and life is what I get from your form and font ... so...Lyn... is he writing love poems for you?? ;))))))))

Yes. That's one of our favourite movies. In my case, my poet was more a deceiver and less a romantic

I see a kind of connection between the stanzas being each is waiting patiently waiting for an outcome. Nice one, Lyn.
