"We walk the lanes to pick them.
'Ffwff-ffwffs'. He gives them the name
he gives to all flowers. 'Fftwff! Ffwffs!'
I teach him to tell the time
by dandelion. 'One o'clock. Two.'
He blows me a field of gold
from the palm of his hand
and learns the power of naming.
The sun goes down in the sea
and the moon's translucent.
He's wary of waves and sand's
soft treachery underfoot.
'What does the sea say?' I ask.
'Ffwff! Ffwff!" he answers, then turns
his face to the sky and points
to the full-blown moon."
Can anyone explain imagery in this poem and how does the content of the poem links with its title?
