and a muscular
of the sun

What a lovely start to the new year…we’ve got a few hours yet here…cheers!
Thanks Charles… I hope you rode the new year in with style.
Wow, that’s very good, particularly the last stanza which gets to the ‘heart’ of the moment – a philosophical ‘aha’ moment (in my interpretation anyhoo )
That’s a great way of looking at it Gabe. Am glad it opened up to you!
tearing open the heart of the sunflower…whew…intense…happy new year to you…you were well ahead of us…smiles
Thanks Claudia, so glad the intensity of this poem opened up for you. Happy 2013!!
