Taraxacum officinale

Those colorfully
yellow and green
migrant flowers
from Europe.

Ruderals so successful
they’re widespread
windblown
seeds parachute
trying their lot everywhere

and especially find a loving niche
between nicely manicured blades of
mono cultured grass.
Our lawns.

But those golden-maned beasts
take over and push
all else out
in our unnatural habitats

making them more man-made by the minute

and are at the gates
roaring
of the wilds now too.

Do tread on them.

Happy

Well it’s not sitting there
treasure like
waiting to be unearthed

you can’t pay for it

looking or study won’t help

but

if you’re willing to open up
and work hard

man, it can knock you
broadside like a barn door

though it’s usually just a wee thing

take it close to heart
and rejoice ’cause

it’s found you

That’s why the mercy is Divine

Adam and Eve learned
falling from trust in their Lord.
Climbing back is hard.

When the big gust comes hard ask not why the bell tolls

You can deny the weather all you like
you can ignore my words
 or 99% of scientists
but Climate?

Climate’s a bitch.
  Katrina, Wilma, Sandy, Irma, Maria
Go ahead and deny them!
 I dare you.

The sad thing is that the
cost of your being proven
 wrong
especially as the lag
will hit your grandkids
is high.

 So very severe.

The kids will
have that hindsight
 written as fact in carbon
 so very twenty twenty.

That gramps and grannie
were horribly selfish people.

What was the great Denier Talking point?
Oh yeah-
 “The point is, you can never be too greedy.”

Sweet Dreams to the Dreamy

Sleep… perchance to dream
of me as the warmth comforts

Veni, Vidi, Deus Vicit on this day in 1683

King Jan’s cavalry
smashed the Turk seige of Wien:
an empire fell.

Whither Withering Devastatress

when Irma came round
not polite: we flew to ground
and were meat to pound
