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

Still Life with Sunflowers
9/9/2001
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


9/10/2001



9/11/2001
Wilted leaves potpourri 
mixed in with seeds on scorched earth
memories of hope
9/12/2001





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

Nature's Eternal Cycle Our Solace 2001-2012
