Witnessing a Wish

I witnessed a wish in the making this afternoon while walking to collect my grandson from school. A mother up ahead was pushing a pram, she paused, reversed a few steps and plucked a dandelion clock growing at that point where the earth meets concrete. Moments after passing it to the young fingers reaching upwards from the pram a light shower of nature’s gyroscopes floated through the air. Beautiful.
