What You Can't See and Will

Beautifully bowing golden-edged heads
rise up ridiculously tall from their beds.

Some with stalks the diameter of small trees.
Only a few no taller than my knees.

Many rise to the height of the overhang of my roof.
the lovely flowers have brought out many previously aloof!

There is a beauty in them that can make anyone smile.
Perhaps not immediately, but definitely after a while.

They brighten my days
in so many ways.

Surprisingly, to me, they smell wonderfully.
I'd thought they were only good for the eyes previously.

They reach for the sun way up in the sky.
Sunflowers so big they make my heart sigh.

Clouds smattered across a summer blue
beyond the varying shades of transparent green, is a clue.

The sky beyond my sunflowers' leaves.

a close up of sunflower seeds ^_^
and to Macro Monday

Thank you, Mom. :)

kulasa, I tried to comment on the poem with pictures on your blog, EARLY morning July 23, 2012, but I cannot for some reason... or maybe I did and just don't know it worked because my end doesn't show it did. ? Anyway... thank you for your kind words. :)

I really enjoyed the combination of pictures and words you created. I hope you will have much success in finding good and inspiring yourself and others! ^_^

The sun through the leaves is a really excellent image. I love the contrast with the blue sky and green leaves.
