A sunflower reminds me of a person: it’s like a head with hairs moved by the wind. Or take the sunflower below: she seems a bit lonely, far away from the other ones. She’s surrounded by others, but still alone. That’s how life feels sometimes!
But what about this one: this sunflowers spreads her leaves like arms, saying: “Here I am, I love you, I look to you!” She’s like an open person, she looks you right in your eyes!
This one is the one that gives life, a place where bees and other insects love to be. She is like a person who is a blessing for others: people like to be with her!
The last one shows a beauty behind her face. A complicated system of leaves and hairs, beautifully made! There is so much more behind a person’s face, so much more thoughts and feelings than we can see at first glance!
