More Sunflowers

Look there...
Beside the stream
Lovely heads wave gaily
Sunflowers say, heat's on the way--
Summer!

These two watercolor paintings I completed a while back are my last hurrah to sunflowers and summer for the year. I hope. 🙂 I’m more than ready for fall.

Drama Queens

sun splays
atop mountain
looks down on gloomy sea
blue waves slam against soul’s nadir
rocks weep

Bold, steady, strong
golden like the sunlight
imparter of knowledge of plants

(In Roman mythology, Flora is the goddess of flowering plants, and also, the season of spring. I wrote this poem for my sister who inherited our mother’s love of “digging in the dirt.” Below is a watercolor of my sister that I painted quite a while back; the featured image is from Rawpixel.)
