A Dandelion lullaby

L. B. Mek


Within hope’s solace 


Empathy’s mercy

There is yet Grace

In our fallible humanity!


I wish you a field of Dandelions 

In your dreams, every night

May you blow your wishes

Into realisable tangibility!



In doing-so, find

That spark of innate sublime

Distilling life’s nurturing beauty 

From within your experience 

Of thorn pebbled, existence


Refute those trappings of hate

Release your fears and regrets 

Reassure that trusting heart

Choose humility’s, bravery

Choose, kindness as your legacy!

          what vibrant words of encouragement

          Isn't that hate so tangible, as we see in Ukraine. One man's hate for a country, and the outcome that brings.
          There's a fine line between love and hate, and maybe that's why the two words always stand side by side.

          • L. B. Mek

            so much hate, fuelled by distortion
            in people's, entitled assumptions
            of love..
            that certain, failed artist
            did what he did, born out of national pride
            and a zealot, need
            for revenge for those who savaged his art..
            in his mind, it got warped
            and he made history, showcasing
            that potential, for limitless inhumanity
            we all, are capable of
            if we're not careful with our choices and words..
            (but there is yet hope for us, I think
            we still grasp empathy's reins
            when we can
            and that's been enough, so far
            to recalibrate, humanity's trajectory
            of wanton
            self: distraction)

            Oh those poor dandelions, for i shall be forever blowing them in my dreams now in the hope of finding the morning has brought to my plate the gift of meekness.

            • L. B. Mek

              the 'will to power'
              to be that 'Uberman', solving the worlds problems
              is an enticing, prospect
              its just that, most times
              when inevitably, those over ambitious
              high aspirations, fail
              there is bitterness, that takes place
              in those once, strong willed hearts and minds
              and from that bitterness, is born
              a perspective
              where our fellow humans, become 'They'
              and we consider ourselves, 'Us'
              the rest
              is a well known, slippery slope
              of thoughts, words and actions
              that insight, hate...
              indeed, 'meekness'
              may seem, pathetic
              to some
              but in it's, humility
              and compassionate empathy, exists
              what may be
              our only tangible hope
              for ending humanity's cyclical need
              to destroy, and murder
              in the name of progress and power..

                Such a shame. Where is the "we".

                A truly beautiful poem and metaphor full of reassuring wisdom. Aside from the great image of a field of wish fulfilling dandelions, the last stanza packed more power and glory to the poem. I not only loved this piece it set the tone for my day. Thank you for sharing.

                • L. B. Mek

                  'it set the tone for my day.'
                  what a phrasing, of praise
                  I am so genuinely, grateful
                  you so fit, to gift me these words
                  that, in turn
                  have made my morning
                  so very bright and sweet..
                  humbly, I thank you! dear Poet

                  "Choose, kindness as your legacy!" "CHOOSE, KINDESS AS YOUR LEGACY!"
                  I mean, do I need to say anything else. This, right here, is beyond words.
                  All I can say is..... awestruck.

                  • L. B. Mek

                    how overtly, Kind
                    dear Poet

                    humbly and wholeheartedly, I thank you
                    for this, championing of my simple ideal..
                    let us All, be brave enough
                    to Choose kindness, as our antidote
                    to all the abundant, chaos and strife
                    in our lives..
