Sunflowers speak

A different language

That no other flower can

But when they speak to me

Somehow I understand


They stand tall in attention

listening very  carefully

To the songs of the angels

singing gleefully

their message is to spread your love

completely and openly

as often as you can.

This is why I try to paint

Sunflowers like Van Gogh

Although they may be a little rough

I know one thing is for sure.

I follow through with the message

Sunflowers were  created to make.

Love is the most important thing in life

Make no mistake.
