Noll on When the Sun Becomes a Flower

One season challenges the next:
Spring succumbs to Summer,
Summer whimpers into Fall,
Fall crumbles into Winter,
Winter wanes into Spring.
It is a never-ending chase.

It is now that we stand before the passing of Spring and await the halcyon moment. The happy, golden moment.
----
They stand tall in the garden,
with tightly knit seed heads.
Waiting.

The bullfrog harrumphs. Fledglings abdicate their nests. The winter wheat awaits harvest.
---
Rain, light, rain and the faces burst forth.
---
The sun of the sky stares down, met by the gaze of flower faces - a legion of faces ringed in yellow flames. Adulating sunflower faces following the sun's progress through the sky.
---
When the Sun becomes a Flower,
Summer reigns.
