Oddly Japanese petals
I lay under massive sunflowers in Japan
Sunflowers in Japan, with huge bright green stems, fuzzy with white spots
the leaves are brighter green with light golden specks of confetti on the ends
The head sits stoically like spots on a ladybug perfectly round
The petals are bright orange and yellow and the center is a rich brown
My mind wonders wildly, why are there sunflowers in Japan?
As I ponder my confusion of the sunflowers
It doesn’t take away from the joy I feel as each citrine colored petal falls
Covering my face, I close my eyes as the wind rushes past me
Small crystals of pale dirt are lifted with the wind
I lay there smiling at the scene, the bright ball of light kisses my eyes
Where are the cherry blossoms?
It’s beautiful, I’m happy
