Still Life With SunflowersFrom #911 to 9/11 and Back Again | Seeds of Hope

Still Life with Sunflowers
11 Years ago
#911 begot a new meaning
9/11 forever stamped on our
collective consciousness
as a day of terror and destruction
innocence lost, watercolors took on new meaning
red white and blue
from sullen background presence
to American flag


Wilted leaves potpourri 
mixed in with seeds on scorched earth
memories of hope

Eleven years have gone by
scars remind, remain
yet sunflowers bloom again

Nature's Eternal Cycle Our Solace 2001-2012
