A wildflower, scattered by the wind

Taking root where it lands

Thorny leaves for protection

While yielding bursts of color radiantly

Alone on a hill destined to fight the elements

Hoping to survive in its landscape.

gg, our resident poet laureate!

Strong images...

And I like that between the fourth and fifth line, it's possible to read "radiantly alone". Maybe that wasn't what you had in mind.... but hey, that's what the reading public is for - to ferret out surprises :o)

you're good

Very nice.

My own pessimistic experience is that I've often tossed a bunch of wildflwer seeds around and gotten little result. Except that, a stray bloom will sometimes crop up a year or two AFTER the fact.

And that's pretty cool metaphoriacally, you know?
