It's Sunflower Season...






Lafayette, New Jersey, September 1, 2001

God’s abundance wows me
from a sprawling field of sunflowers
which tower above
on thick woody stalks
They lift great ochre heads
framed in ragged haloes
of yellow gold
to shine sunrays upon me
like God’s own radiant face
amid a communion of saints
and I must smile back
Their leaves
are big green hearts
In their midst
my own heart
grows and greens
How God loves me!
He astonishes His child
with wondrous whimsies
Soon, when the season ends
they’ll just nod their weary heads
and shed their golden haloes
on the ground
and bequeath their gift of seed
to ravens of the air
which will feast festively
upon God’s abundance
unto them
