Ode to Yellow

I love watching the finches find the sunflowers

their yellow and black on the green and yellow


their simple joy of finding seeds and chasing bees


hiding just a bit as the flowers dip down from their foraging


sometimes one, many times two or three feasting


impatient for the seeds to dry they steal from still blooming heads


nothing makes me smile like sunflowers


fall arrived today and my flowers bowed their heads low


no more sunflowers now until next spring. I'll miss them so.
