Sunflowers- Emotions

Poet's Notes

Sunflowers make a unified display; symmetrically joined, each one by one- gold petals dance around a center stage; together, side-by-side in harmony. Sunflower stems exhibit stable strength supporting well their towering large heads; as they, with thick, broad leaves encounter wind- stems firmly keep them upright in the fields. Adapting for good light, sunflowers thrive by using their heliotropic heads; they turn to face the sun when changing paths- from East to West- and back to East again. Framed by a landscape under sunny skies- sunflower scenes are lovely works of art; bright, sunny faces, swaying in the breeze- creative work of nature- full and lush. Bright, golden sunflowers- for me, mean love; a gift presented to me through the years. To honor special days, my family- oft send me lovely sunflower bouquets.
