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

It is a wonderful capture. It brings back memories when I was a boy and would play with them on the farm watching them float away.
