  1. Dwight, I like everything about this poem! Your photo is beautiful, and using the phrase, “recycled sunshine” to describe the sunflower is ingenious.

    A volunteer sunflower is a wonderful surprise. When I was a child, my family used to sit on the back steps watching the sunset over the Blue Ridge mountains and eating watermelon. I remember being delighted when watermelon plants volunteered beside the steps. The miracle of a seed growing into a plant still retains its magic.

  2. I would love to have a volunteer sunflower 🌻 right outside my window. How delightful, Dwight. And I enjoyed reading the exchange between you and the person with melon stories. We didn’t have any luck with melons in my childhood either. And they certainly don’t grow here in Montana!
