I stumbled upon the most beautiful
of sunflower fields yesterday.
Less than a quarter mile from where I live.
I thought it was a gorgeous way
to breathe in the last days of summer
in all of its beauty and splendor.
I cut as many stems
as my two arms could carry.
I'm going to hold onto
these last days
as long as possible.
Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
