2020: 1st Place for Poetry - Holly Richardson, "Dandelion Wine"
The summer breeze blew through your ruffled hair.
My thoughts mixed in the ocean’s shifting palm.
The grass under our fingertips felt like a rigid edge to a new beginning.
My mouth uplifted by your euphoric hum.
Oh, how the dandelions danced to the trees marching beat.
A part of me will forever remain here,
implanted in the soil under our feet.
Until the last apple falls from the frolicking tree,
I will remain in this for eternity.
