Sunny Sunflowers


Standing tall against the sky
Your smile reflects to those who pass by…

sunflower red


A glow so bright and strong
One soon forgets a world of wrong…



Sometimes shedding tears
Life can be full of many fears…



Those that pass by are drawn
like a sunrise at a morning dawn.



Basking in your glow
you help one to feel life’s flow…

Your light may sometimes dim
but you always learn to smile again…

Tired you may seem to feel,
but soon to come more seeds of hope to heal…. 



Spreading your love you light up the world again…

Your beauty and color shines even in the darkest places…

I hope the rays of a  sunflower can filter deep into you and shine a light in your heart…



May your life be filled with sunny sunflowers
and have a
Good Morning…    Good Afternoon…   Good Night…Whatever it is to you…

What a lovely story you tell with your beautiful sunflowers, and they are stunning, I don't normally go for large flowers preferring small and dainty, but you can't help but smile when you see such a sunny smiling face, and the colour, fantastic.

Oh, how I love sunflowers!

Carrie, you have captured all the loveliness of these sunny blooms. And I always love the words that you attach to your photos. That first one was simply breath-taking.

Notice how all of them open up their faces to the sky? Isn't that the only way to bloom into all our glory, too? By turning our eyes and our hearts to the sky - and to the Glorious One who gives our lives meaning...
