Artwork Statement
Dandelion
 
A brilliant blooming chrysanthemum
withered slowly,
emerge from its torus, the seed,
opened like a featherweight umbrella,
awaiting for the wind
 
When the wind blows,
the seed fly with the wind and to the sky
 
Closing its umbrella, the seed landed on the soil,
minuscule yet just with sufficient energy within to survive,
only when the time comes,
with the rain, sun, warmth and soil all ready,
it will awaken …
Then grow into a small sapling to greet the world;
and blooming with a big smile to the sky.
 
Gradually
small seedlings grow into blossoms,
blossoms into fruits and matured into seeds,
and with the wind to carry on another journey …
