Sometimes the sun comes up from the ground,
in the circular bloom of a Black-eyed Susan,
or the saucer-like blossom of the cup plant.
The super-saturated yellow lit from behind,
standing up to the heat of the day
without wilt or complaint.
It is the embodiment of summer,
of sun and heat and a season of growth.
It is a celebration.
Happiness is a flower in the sunlight.
Happiness is a summer day.
Happiness is the month of August.
The stunning simplicity of a flower that echoes the sun,
backed and buoyed by the green of sustenance and life,
will always be a wonder to behold.
The heart bursts with joy
at these explosions of a summer
that’s not quite ready to give up.Back to Blog
