Bloom Where You Are Planted

by Michelle Maynard-Koenig

This poem is dedicated to all of the “dandelions” in the world. Keep facing the sun of your truth and grace our universe with your beauty!

bloom where you are planted

Not everyone appreciates dandelions,
like they do pristine roses,
mowed down as unwanted weeds
and simply disposed of.

But I see each of us as flowers
in the garden of life,
with diverse stems and petals
contrasted in width and height.

Roses, Poppies, Daisies,
Ivy, Lilies, and Orchids so blue,
Sunflowers, Carnations, Cattails
Peonies and Dandelions, too.

Each having unique existence of
personality, beauty and purpose,
with nectar of love and kindness
that radiates into the universe.

So wherever you are planted
among people, places, and things,
fear not being mowed down
as an unappreciated weed.

Bloom where you are planted
at home, work or school,
allow the light of your being
grace the universe with your truth.
