Dropped like a gift,
A seed from another.
Slowly you grow,
Golden petals long and slim.
Your elegant, but strong leaves,
Swaying in the breeze.
You grace us with your presence,
As you lift to face the sun.
Lying in your center,
Is the heart of your being.
Growing new seeds,
To feed those in need.
A seed is taken, a seed is eaten,
A seed is dropped, which begins to grow.
Feed those who happen by.

Beautiful poetry – sunflowers are my very favorite. They’re just so “cheery!” 🙂
Hi Cheryl, this lovely, four foot, Sunflower sprang up next to one of my birdbaths. It is the only one around. I agree, Sunflowers are cheery! I hope to capture more images of the other two pods once they begin to open. Hope you have a great day!
Very Nice Sunflowers are one of the moments of happiness.
I do believe flowers bring happiness to those that take the time to appreciate their beauty.
