Sunflowers out of season
The fact of the matter
that sunflowers are never out of season!
They may devolve into
(have you seen the packets and packets
and shops and shops
full of these snacks in Spain?)
And what lasts deeply
is the memory
of their strong resilience
their constant expectation
their tenuous clinging onto their own place
of their delighting a room
their smiling a greeting
their celebrating an anniversary
memories in our eyes and hearts until we see them again.
