Title Flower Weed
Description FLOWER WEED Bonnie Nielson Dahlsrud P.O. Box 195 Salina, UT S4654 Professional Division Honorable tlention Poetry Dandelion flower in "morning gold parades with breezes, while chubby hands hold her proud and high. And young girls' voices wonder why she isn't sold with roses. Her peppered frills are child's perfumes and more than spiced enough for sneezes = Soft ruffles pour from liquid stems and fashion pleats with jagged hems that new buds tore while dancing. Dandelion weed in scorched, drab brown bows her tired mane to shed her gown, while shovels rip her frazzled skirt from lifeless hip and crush her down, no encore. Teenaged girls now understand why the rose, pink but unashamed, models sheer clothes of frosted dew, costing more than the cheap, yellowed hue that gloved hands chose to strangle. Source: Author's recollection of the dandelions that she gathered as a child from Ephraim's ditchbanks, lawns, and fields, and her confusion as to why these "flowers" were considered weeds. 33
