Sunflower Sway

Rooted, they rise with towering strength. Flexible limbs bend and sway to the rhythm of bees and shifting breeze. Honey-kissed centers and golden headdresses bow and nod towards the summer sky. Heart leaves open to pausing finches, welcomed partners in this mid-morning dance. Slowly my own limbs begin to move, back and forth, forth and back. With a swing in my waist and joy in my hips, Hara centered and rooted feet. Reaching arms with open palms. Sunlit smiles and sunflower sway. This is how to welcome the day.
