Petals, Like Halos

Not far from hime, I recently strolled through a large sunflower field. I really was an amazing experience. Here’s why. (And yes, I took the photo featured here. The sunflowers you see are the sunflowers I saw.)

Through a Field of Sunflowers

I should
walk softly,

steps placed
as fallen feathers.

This morning
their heads

are bowed in prayer;
petals, like halos,

long for the sun’s
new light.
