...fell on deaf ears, and sapped the vitality of the speaker...
vz-nostalgia: this could happen as well, Ray, when the seeds of a spoken word fall onto a hard like a rock soul. Nothing grows on a rock but lichens. Still worth a try, don't you think? smile
vz-nostalgia: I don't think we're in disagreement here, Ms. Roz.
Received kind words are treasured, true. The fate of kind words we meant to say, but never did, is often death. And even if we let them free at, say, a later day, they come out faded, as it's too late.
c'est la vie. Tout passe.
vz-nostalgia: I didn't know you are a philosopher, Ms. Odilily. smile
A kind word, a touch, when needed are like a flower. They fade but the memory of the beauty or comfort remains for a long time afterwards.
vz-nostalgia: all true, Bill. But I talk about the unspoken words of kindness, the ones we frequently postpone to share with others, until it is too late.
What a gorgeous image Vik: they almost look like expensive gowns...
vz-nostalgia: Nature is beautiful throughout the spectrum, Chris, from start to finish, from birth to death. Too often that we focus on the beauty of a flower in its prime, but rarely appreciate its charm, when its love affair with life is over.

Wilt away and die.. Not on your lifesmile

An extraordinary image Viktor. I thought they were folds of dirty fabric to start with. Kind words are better than harsh words, but disappear into the ether fast enough. Kind deeds are longer-lasting.
Ingrid
vz-nostalgia: sure, Ingrid, kind words are better than harsh ones, on one condition though, when they are spoken. Same goes with deeds. smile
Excellent capture Viktor - as others have said it looks like strips of fabric draping down.
vz-nostalgia: a fabric made in heaven for the angels, Ms. Bernie. smile

Yes, what I always admire- how beautiful flowers are dying! Chirs is right: they look like gowns after a feast or a theatre play- very impressive and some melancholy! Your words lead us to reflect about... My problem is that I don't know all connotatations of this term: 'kindness' as a kind of politeness, formal courtesy, flattery... and these are the most 'kind' /'very kind' words we hear or read!- they "fade quickly", are quickly forgotten, but "words of kindness" as an expression of kindness of heart, spoken by special persons in special situations in a special way, often added by a special gesture, filled with cordiality and deep warmth- they don't fade so quickly and are rooted in our minds and we include them as a treasure in our heart! Sometimes "words of kindness" can be 'unspoken', because you can hear them with your inner ears and your eyes- fewer words are often more!
vz-nostalgia: The idea behind my shot is much more simpler, Ms. Philine. I thought I expressed it quite clear, when I said "unused, unspoken". As I said to Bill, so often we postpone to say good things to others, and when we finally are ready to say them, oftentimes it is too late, the moment is gone, the situation has changed, the person is no longer here with us...

Wonderful. I love the photograph, the quality, the tone, the movement. What I really see: Dancing women floating in space, when the top 3rd of photograph is removed. It captivates my imagination to complete something captured and has already begun in the photograph.
vz-nostalgia: I love it, when people see and read the same photograph so differently, Nasreen. "Dancing women floating in space" sounds so beautiful.

"The Words of Kindness … unused, unspoken"
You're right, people often criticise quickly but forget to say thank you or praise.
vz-nostalgia: smile, Ms. Ellie.
they certainly do Victor and with the summers we are experiencing lately quicker and quicker i am afraid. Gorgeous image with great tones. Well done Victor, celebrating the new president elect Victor?
vz-nostalgia: Celebrating is not teh word to describe it. I don't think folks still understood the historic significance of what happened. And not only because a black man was elected, but mainly because finally we have a president who cares not about his own pocket and the pockets of his friends, but about his country, and not by the way of slogans, like the "Country First" bullshit.

They look like fabric to me, like four crumpled skirts on the floor, or trains trailing behind four elegant ballgowns...
vz-nostalgia: oh my, "four crumpled skirts on the floor". You are going, where I wouldn't dare to go, Katie, into a floral erotica. smile
These are the flowers of the Angel's Trumpet plant. The skirts of fallen angels? smile
Very good photograph, Viktor.
vz-nostalgia: I certainly hope so, otherwise I wouldn't put it for the public to view, Chad. smile

At once grotesque and beautiful.
vz-nostalgia: Wonder in which way it is grotesque and in which way it is beautiful, Larry. smile

Artistic and the color tone is nice....
vz-nostalgia: You know you are definitely onto something, if NaCha managed to write more than two words in her comment. smile

I think that the structure, still visible, belies the death throes implied, which makes it an ambivalent 'living' artifact.
vz-nostalgia: At times, there is so much beauty in the process of dying in nature, Ms. Jamoula. I know, it sounds weird. We are not accustomed to such thoughts, but I often think of it, while working in my garden. smile
