Three Sunflowers

Three sunflowers gifted to me
'Tis the beauty of bloom I do see
Centers of seed and abundance true
God's glory in wondrous full view
Humble and proud they grow and stand
These the gifts of the Creator's hand.

  1. Hi RoseMarie-

    I hope you get a moment to visit my blog. I haven't been commenting too much if at all on anyone's blog as of late. My last 2 posts explain why. But when I saw the three sunflowers I was drawn to visit here and tell you that I give my sister three sunflowers every Mother's day in honor of her three sons - her oldest son, Clayton died 7 years ago and sunflowers are his favorite flower -

    love Gail

  2. Gail, You have been missed. Spirit is ever present and our hearts be known to one another. I will now visit. I too, in the midst of an interlude.

    Blessings to you and yours.


    Rose Marie

  3. I love this series of sunflowers by Van Gogh and your words celebrate their beauty aptly :)
