Dandelion Flower Seeds

One blow
frees the seeds
from its stem
and
coupled with a wish
it travels

down
the
water

and
washed up
along the riverside.
Picked up by
a wide-eyed child
with dirt-filled fingernails
as she goes to the water
to wash her hands.

She notices flower seeds
without a stem
wondering
where its beauty has gone
