Cheerful sunflower
Bows laden bloom in deference
To golden namesake

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  9. Sunflowers – the most evocative name and the most appropriate … we have fields of them stretching as far as you can see turning their heads as the earth makes it’s orbit. Another lovely alignment of your well chosen words and a well chosen angle

  25. I also see the sunflower bowing to the sun. This was funny because I was thinking “bows” on a package. A little tired but finally figured this out. Ha ha! I like the green leaves curling like a bow but of course, love it your original way!!
