Field of wishes

As I lay on my stomach trying to photograph

The lovely way the dandelions catch the evening light,

I thought to myself:

Sparkles

What do you see?

A weed –

Or wishes?

Blown copy

Suddenly, the wind blew

And the tiny wishes

Floated away, like sparkling fairy dust.

Wishes

  1. Dandelions are at their most beautiful as they go to seed and fly off in the form of wishes.

  69. Great post. :) My kids love dandelions. They would pick them and blew those little seeds/wishes away and watch them fly away.

    June 19, 2013 at 21:06

  70. I wonder who first decided that dandelions were weeds and not lovely wildflowers :-)?

    June 19, 2013 at 21:20

    Wonderful – I see Angels floating to find someone to land upon to cheer their Heart.

    June 19, 2013 at 21:56

  72. A field of wishes is such a lovely idea!

    June 19, 2013 at 22:11

  73. You have 73 comments!! wow!! You do have a way of isolating a single moment in time, freezing it, photoing it, and then writing such universal quiet thoughts…I am still learning from you. I really do like your mind. ..have a great day! cheers.

    June 19, 2013 at 23:25
