For the Daily Inkling’s flower power theme.
The force that drives the flower
is the power of the sun,
the thrusting molten rock in fusion
of deep earth fires.
Two furnaces strive,
two anvils, forging titans,
filling the universe with burgeoning stars
and billions of eyes to watch their ascension.
The culmination of this struggle,
burning gases, rocks
and the scintillation of stars—
a shaggy-maned dandelion.
