“The dandelion is the strength and cunning and power of the lion whose name it carries, a brilliant flash of yellow in a solid sea of green, and the lightness of a wish on the wind…a gossamer moon waiting for you to come and make your wishes known, to carry them away on wings. It is the flower of the god and goddess–sun and moon, vibrant and full and beauteous, in life and in death.
“So go outside today. Look for the flash of yellow in your lawn and fields. Look for the gossamer moon waving in the breeze. Stop. Appreciate the unstoppable, untamable energy of the dandelion.”
–from StaciAnne Grove’s tribute to the dandelion in the May/June issue of “Sacred Journey: The Journal of Fellowship in Prayer.”
