yourself in a sunflower

ever been astounded, face-to-face, with a flower?
see it at eye level and it becomes a fellow, a friend
someone who takes from you, reflects it back
brilliant and delicate, magnified, justified
as if you were the sun and it followed you
tracking your thoughts and receiving your warmth
breezes may bend it, rain may drown it
but only it may turn to the sky and know
that there is no difference yet between us.
