Poetry Friday: No Longer by Ellen Grover

No longer a broken umbrella,
cracking with the gusts.
Now a red balloon,
rising upon dreams.

No longer a solitary tumbleweed,
careening down empty streets.
Now a golden blade,
sashaying with the prairie grasses.

No longer a dying dandelion,
flying to pieces at the lightest touch.
Now a bold daffodil,
blazing life.

-- No Longer by Ellen Grover

Reprinted with expressed permission of the poet. Thank you so much, Ellen!
