    This gives me a sense of standing in a cool sunny breeze in Spring. Rather like today, in fact. Thanks much. K.

  3. I would never have thought of the sunflower as an eye – very creative response to the photo.

    “petaled lashes flutter open”…. wow!

    Great personification of the eye, and great use of the indirect and oblique, which is for me one of the most important ways to illustrate a point in poetry. Loved it.
