Sunflowerfamily

at first glance,
it’s obvious she belongs to
the Sunflower family.
the family resemblance is obvious.

Sunflowerpetals1

those yellow petals
shining brightly
from the dark center
of seeds.
future generations of Sunflowers.

Sunflower3

but sit with her,

Sunflower8

take a while to get to know her,

Sunflower7

and you’ll see that
while yes,
she is a Sunflower,

Sunflower10

she is more
than who she’s related to,
more than the
geography
from which she
comes.

Sunflower6

so much more.

Sunflower2

and maybe
not at all
what you
thought she was
when you knew her
only as a Sunflower.

    I love how you’ve captured the center of this beautiful sunflower. I don’t remember sunflowers looking so vibrant and lovely. Thanks for sharing!

      I was shocked to see such vibrancy, too, Sugar. Pleasantly shocked.

Pull up a chair why don't you, and let's talk . . .
