Sunflowers--By Marlene Million--United States


Good Morning, Sunflowers!
You face the sun in worship
with petals, a spiral pattern
of rich lemony, bountiful fun.

Nature focuses upon your yellow-
bright flower heads, bees
buzz, butterflies flit,
finches pinch at your seeds.

Your bouquet flourishes in a
vase upon table. This joyful
ambiance is made radiant
by your glorious presence.

God nods approval, casts
his blessings. Each corner
bursts into sunshine delight,
jovial blossoms of sun!
