Oh, Dean, this is lovely and I'm sure Brooke will love it. Not only because she had an affinity for dandelions but It would make such a wonderful counting book for children. The imagery is terrific as is the meter and rhyme.

Ten Tiny Dandelion Seeds
Simply put, I loved this poem!
It is so well done! Beautiful . Such a creative idea to imagine where each of the little seeds go! I am so thankful for poems that teach me how to appreciate the little things, not to mention how to write!

    The lady who inspired this poem, Brooke Baldwin (adewpearl) was an instructor here and the number 1 poet for at least ten years in a row.
    She taught me so much and I have tried to follow her example by paying it forward.
    Thanks so much for your kind review, Tina.

    You are welcome! Its such a sweet thing,to pay tribute to her contribution to your learning!
    random, but...just realized the word contribution had "tribute" in it, lol.

I had no idea you returned from your hard-working life. I imagine you've produced another book, promoted it or others, and maintained your family business. And by the way, great poem writing.

    Heeeey, Nicole. Where are you these days? I feel you have other goals that do not include much time here. Is that correct? It's good to know you are around, too.

Wonderful energy, creativity, and lightness. The poem spreads itself out and anchors itself in so many places, just as dandelions are able to do. The imagery is great, too.

    I don't know if you were here when adewpearl, or Brooke Baldwin, was the number one poet for like ten years running, Sarah.
    There was nothing she loved more than her grandson, Sawyer, but one thing came close.
    Her love of dandelions and countdown poems.
    I dedicated this one to her. She is sorely missed by those of us who knew and loved her.
    Thanks for reviewing.

Dear Dean, I love to read your work. This one has already received great praise, but I will add my own. It is clever and reverent at the same time.

This is a very sweet poem you have penned. I love dandelions a lot. I love looking at them. I used to love blowing the white off them and watching them go. Great job. Teri

    Brooke (adewpearl) is a very talented poet and sweet lady. She was also a beloved member of this site for many years, holding the number 1 poet's spot for as long as I can remember, Teri.
    Thanks so much for reading and commenting on this poem written in her honor.
    ~Dean :)

Of Dandelions and Fairies
I am sorry I missed this tribute to Brooke when you initially posted it. I immediately recognized the subject of the poem with your reference to "Dandelions and Fairies". I enjoyed your blank verse and hope our teacher-friend "perseveres". She did sound strong when last I spoke with her by phone at the convalescent home here in California. Warm regards- Joan

What a lovely tribute to a friend. The flow of the poem as the blowing of the dandelions in the wind was tender as I remember the dandelions journey every childhood spring. All the best and God Bless

    Thank you writeapoem. I appreciate your comments.
    Brooke Baldwin's presence is dearly missed around here. She's been a FanStory member since the very beginning.
