Sunflower Faces Burnished Gold

Who doesn’t love sunflowers? Is it a love born in our youth as we pondered their giant presence looming over a backyard fence or as we dug those buried seed pods out of bed… They are one of the best of summer yet perhaps old-fashioned to some who don’t remember sun bonnets or rope swings […]

Immediately from dry land into water,
When the sound of water from the ocean
Of fresh waves springs to his ear?

Creative Force that ignites the human spark
no matter when we walked life’s dusty roads~
Be ready when she lays her fire.
Grasp her sweaty hand.
