Where Good Intentions Lay

Where Good Intentions Lay

Most good intentions are resting on the petals of a sunflower
wrestling against the autumn wind and straining  to find the sun.
Slowly slipping from their golden platform and meandering on a
gentle thermal ,finding rest on the dry bracken ground,
only to then slowly decay within  the roughness of the soil,
and  then  be forever buried

Love the picture you have created where sometimes all the best intentions are somehow, lost  and forgotten..but hopefully many more will be remembered and valued. This is a lovely piece of work Lodi, succinct, descriptive and a thoroughly entertaining read.

Thanks so much my friend..really pleased you like it Nigel. Sometimes I am inclined to ramble on a bit but this felt short and complete enough in just a few lines  - which for me is a bit of a miracle!   Lady L xx

Hi Lodigiana....Oh I sure hope some good intentions make it to create something that would never have happened without that good intention to start with.  But, sadly many good intentions are forgotten.  My dad used to say that good intentions lead to the road to hell...(something like that anyway)  Sad portrayal but with incredible imagery with the sunflowers.  Great work.  xo ;)

I think  your Dad was spot on  but I guess that  should never let us stop trying to make good intentions a reality..so pleased you enjoyed it. Thanks  as always for your lovely insight Cherie xxx .
