Dandelion, Regardless

A fresh and vigorous weed
introduced for food and medicine
invasive or welcome (an ongoing debate)
nectar for early bees, smell of sunshine,
a blazing path that leads endlessly on.
Leaves like flags that say: Victory!
Regardless of everything, I am here.
Today’s prompt at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads was to write a poem based on any of several quotes by poets born in April. I chose this one:

“A fresh and vigorous weed, always renewed and renewing, it will cut its wondrous way through rubbish and rubble.” — William Jay Smith
