Only The Wind

Only the wind grows dandelions
And sows the empty air
Careless gardener that he is
He plants them everywhere

Philosophers and poets
Fill an aching need
Bits of wildflower they would sow;
Fleeting feather seed

Only the moon moves oceans;
Brine upon the beach
Tides, a curious notion;
Love too deep to reach

Only the owl asks questions
After the fleeting light
If wisdom is confession
Dreams are born at night

Only a tiny floating seed
Awash on seas of sand
Searching answers; always in need;
The heart of curious man
