A Cloud of Thistledown



Reluctantly the summer goes
In a cloud of thistledown.
~ Beverly Ashour, September



Some thistles purpling into violet,
Their blossoms with a thousand thorns afret,
And like a cobweb, shadowy and grey,
Far floats their down–far drifts my dream away.
~Emily Pauline Johnson

  1. Gossamer and fluffy on the outside protecting the spikey plant (flower ?) on the inside. How perfect nature is. Nothing is wasted. Everything has a purpose in the Grand Design of our loving Creator God. (Even the seeds provide a tasty treat for birds.)
