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

For more glitter and glamour, please visit: Our World Tuesday.

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