Blowing in the Wind

Wisps of recollections waft through my mind like spores on soft white memories’ threads - vague remnants of May's sun-gold heads. I glimpse but cannot hold them. How foolish the girl who sent them blowing in the wind - wishing her springtime soon would end! 8/24/17

I love the thoughtfulness of this, comparing thoughts like a dandelion's seeds .. and that slight ambiguity which makes one wonder if that little girl was yourself. Soup Mail

Succinct, elegant expression of the fleeting passage of time, wished for but now lamented. Well written! Andrea.

Very strong diction at the beginning. Couldn't have picked better words myself for the first 3 lines!

Hi my mind, the "foolish girl" has wished "her springtime (youth)" would end because she wants so desperately to grow up but now that she's old(er) she remembers back when she was so young, living in the sunlight of her youth. (Just an interpretation) It's a lovely poem no matter what the meaning is.

you are very astute!!

The shape formed by your poems progressively shortening lines is typical of one of your countrys ripping "Twisters", Andrea...not by chance I presume? My warmest regards! :) john

Quite and "ethereal" write here Andrea. Every time I read it I feel subtle shifts in the wind.
