Gossamer Threads



"The milkweed pods are breaking,
And the bits of silken down
Float off upon the autumn breeze
Across the meadows brown."

~ Cecil Cavendish, The Milkweed

I remember as a kid playing with the milkweeds in the fall. They liked to land on you face and go up the nose. I did like seeing how they looked like parachutes flying in the sky.
