    What a lovely haiku! Karen and myself, our then pre-teen nephew, and his parents came across a sunflower field, a really big one, and you could pay to enter. We have lots of photos of our nephew up against various sunflowers!

    warmest regards,

    I love this. I'm sharing it with a friend who has a son who is in kindergarten and grew his own sunflowers this summer. <3

    two winter deaths
    now the sunflowers
    bow their heads
