The Daily Turn #15: Sunflower

of course
it could mean 
only this:
we need to clean the gutters
of our house.

But we both felt–
upon seeing the
straight, strong stalk
of a sunflower
stretching up
from the roots
dug deep into
the ditch-bank-edge
of our roof
(two-stories high)–
that it was
a blessing,
a definite metaphor
for something better.

    It is a absolute blessing from God to see something more in every little detail, especially those so small they could be so easily overlooked!! That’s a gift!
