The Persistence of Dandelions


Tumbledown helicopters

Spiral across the eddies

Of countryside breeze

Forever entangling

And dis-entangling

In unseen vortexes

Of springtime

To settle and

Be torn away

Or, when old again,

Be plucked from


By some giddy lover

To be set upon

The rivulets of the air

Currents again,

To, in pieces, soar

Across the world


The ground intervenes.

They will persevere,

As with every weed

Ripped from the ground,

A thousand take flight

On an unexpected breeze.


I’m putting all this up for the love of writing and your enjoyment, and if you would like to use it for your own purposes that would be awesome. However, it’s my writing, and I must ask you to ask me first, and credit me (obviously). Also, if you do I’d really love to see/hear/watch it!

If you’d like to support me, on a monthly basis, then i’d love you forever, and feel free to sign up for my patreon here – i’ll link the blog to here whenever I post something new, as well as a few extra snippets just for patrons (so extracts of WIP larger projects etc)

If you would also like to help me keep putting things up for free, and support my writing but would rather not do monthly donations, my paypal is:


Share, like, comment, critique, spread the word(s) and thankyou for visiting my page, you’re all wonderful.

I’ve also done recordings of several of my poems and stories, which are available on soundcloud here
