yellow petals
the sun shines
on both sides

Photo: Sunflower Twins, c.b.w. 2013. Years ago I had a garden of sunflowers in the back yard. Every once in a while, we’d get conjoined twins and I always loved the idea of “double-sided” flowers. They can see both sides of things and live peacefully together. We can learn a lot from something so simple and so poetic.
