It is a lighthearted view of a fraught topic but for me, the sadness still comes back. Only memories to hold on to but with the struggle and hope of the future ahead. At any rate, I do enjoy it, thank you for sharing it:
At our home we love dandelions, and I've always enjoyed them from childhood onwards. And yes, this year each month floats or fades into another one for good or otherwise.
Terrific haiku, and is ever more poignant in the 2020 year of the plague.
Here's one where I follow Emily Dickinson's dictat "Tell all the Truth but tell it slant", sort of, as this is a tercet. ;-) And it's a 575 haiku as well.
I drift along with the breeze
and dandelion seeds

It's also amazing to be in a dandelion storm, and it was in my former hometown of Bradford-on-Avon (England). :-)
