What things there are to write, if only one could write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach. ~Logan Pearsall Smith

I saw a dandelion growing in a crack of the sidewalk
I knew I saw it every day
I thought that if it could talk
It would say, "If you only noticed,
You would see that I am invincible.
Everyone steps on me, but I grow back easily."
Perhaps there is a lessons to be learned in this
But I am too busy
And it is crushed underfoot
The lesson went unnoticed.
