Growing Through the Cracks

A dandelion seed saw some cracked cement
that was causing the townsfolk torment 
a good little rebel
it looked and said, “Well,
this is where I’ll build my new apartment.” 


This is part of my April poetry writing challenge (NaPoWriMo) where I post a poem every day in April for National Poetry Month. This year I decided to write 30 poems based on the theme of A Fairy Forest In Spring.

This poem is a bonus one, inspired by a title that didn’t work for a different poem. (I really wanted to reference a punk rock dandelion growing in a crack in the sidewalk rather than 10 feet over in the grass. Having an entire poem dedicated to them is even better.)
