One Single Impression: Weed

.

Weed

Lowly weed growing in a sidewalk crack
Trampled by many yet noticed by some

Wise bodies busy rush, they see me not
Seems old and young enjoy my friendly smiles

The young pluck my smiles, bouquets for their Mums
Savored by old, adorning their lapels

Though I'm just a weed in the sidewalk crack
For some my blossoms are pretty flowers

Dreamers see what wise men can't [???]

The flower pictured is from a previous post . It was found growing by the sidewalk in Killarney, Ireland. I did not notice but a part of it may have been growing from a crack in that sidewalk.
