How sunflowers


how sunflowers 
could grow taller than me— 
in first grade 
the blurry border 
between fairy tale and fact

I feel like growing sunflowers. Maybe next summer.

  1. A charming tanka and a beautiful photo, too! You should grow some sunflowers--ours are much taller than me!

  2. Those fluid perceptions of childhood ... wondered captured and expressed so well, here.

    1. I tried growing them once, but the seedlings died quickly. Now I buy them at the flower stand.

  4. Thanks, everyone.

    We planted sunflower seeds once for school. I grew a seedling but then, I believe, forgot to ever water it. I tried again once, 2-3 years ago, but I didn't even get to seedling stage.
