Be A Sunflower


Sunflowers just can't help it,
Turning toward the sun
Whatever the weather.
So be a sunflower today,
Have fun!
Be better!
Face the sun!

    No salted seeds for me but I will reach for the sun.
    The safest kind of power is prefixed by flower. (Report) Reply

    I think I'll give it a try. I'll try to be that sunflower today, and make it a good one - not only for myself, but for all whose path I cross. And if it works, I'll give it another try on tomorrow. Love the connotation of this poem. Makes my day. (Report) Reply

    Hmmm...I wonder if all of us eat sunflower seeds 3 times a day & for a midnight snack, we'll have more fun and be better, peace-lovings people? Nah...Probably not, and with my luck, I'll get a shipment of the salted kind, and fafter 2 days of eats, feel as if the sun fell on me, with a blood pressure read of 210 over 160! ! ! ! Succinctly sweet and upbeat poem..Enjoyed! ~FjR~ (Report) Reply
