Twirl

Standard

blue wind rushes
long strands of grass
flowers twirl

The mountains surrounded everything and they were majestic, but the tiny little flowers caught my eye. The clouds whirled overhead and the wind pushed through the grass, letting the flowers dance. Such a lovely moment in a beautiful place.

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.
