Sunflowers Soaking in the Sun

Twyla Olsen’s mixed media — Sunflowers Soaking the Sun, and the poem it inspired by Kat Everitt.

deep into the fiery heart of each sunflower in the fields

were all the glimpses of the sun’s harvesting bounty;

plentiful yields...

and high above October Fest’s dancing, carousing party guests,

each petaled heart of fecund seed sprang to the

heralding of one need 

to sing out-loud with boisterous fun, of sunflowers

soaking in the sun....
