Dandelion Fairy Sonnet, Illustration by Dahlia

The dandelion fairy
is perhaps the buzziest
of the bunch, weaving
between bumble bees
and dragonflies, yellow
misting lawns with hope.
Her bright flowers with
petals of divine light.

A wing caught in joy,
the mother and child 
pick dandelions, morning
moving to their fingertips
as the fairy flutters on
with nature on their toes.

Drawing by Spectacular Dahlia!

This is the anticipated layout of our book, which I am so, so, so (!) excited about!
With respect to my daughter’s labored artwork with many drafts for each one fairy, I believe this is a fair glimpse at our book proposal. I am so proud of my daughter’s art, I couldn’t be happier.

Thank you readers!

Dandelion Fairy Sonnet

The dandelion fairy
is perhaps the buzziest
of the bunch, weaving
between bumble bees
and dragonflies, yellow
misting lawns with hope.
Her bright flowers, with
petals of divine light.

A wing caught in joy –
the mother and child
pick dandelions, morning
moving to their fingertips –
the fairy flutters on,
for the next sundrops’ child.

Definition of Sundrop: Any of various plants of the genera Oenothera and Calylophus having four-petaled yellow flowers that bloom during the day.
