snap. love the image of the milkweed in the wind...and so true, how do you get them back in once they are out...oneshot will open at 5 pm EST....thanks for playing!
Very cool! Just like ripples in the water.
The question is strong....and seems to linger....or perhaps it is my own? I hear an echo, "you don't." I think somehow it has the substance of the "wind."
I guess we have to learn to live with the naked milkweed stem.
Yes, please tell me how to collect all the scattered milkweed seed and make it the same??
Beautiful words, Suz !And a lovely picture !Nice week,Sylvia
sigh... this was beautifuland yes, some things can never return to the way they were and when the substance is gone...
Oh wow -- what a wonderful keeper. What a story it tells, and what truth in that question -- the picture is lovely too.

This is so true - how can you take back words once they have been spoken.
Great imagery with the milkwood seed. This is one of your best! Loved it.
You are a poet through and through, Suz. I love the metaphor of the floating milkweed seed...like all the stupid things I've said (or done!) that I can't undo. Loved it!
You don't. But, oh, I've often wished I could. Great sentiment, perfectly expressed, Suz.
Suz, this is another one for my "Suz Favorites"! Just fantastic!!! Rick
