Paraclete – Author Brenda-Lee Ranta

 

He picked a Dandelion

It was yellow

He loved yellow

Two years old,

everything was magic

His sweet dimpled hand

clutched it, coveted it

He held it out to his mother

with reverence, this gift

He was the Paraclete

Something considered worthless

became splendid, miraculous

It was also the day

his mother saw the beauty

of a Dandelion.
