late summer in Kansas means endless fields thick with sunflowers.
they stretch their necks high,
turning their broad, open faces across the sky with the sun.
last Sunday my outfit sort of resembled my favorite flower,
what with a green skirt, yellow top and brown hair.
it was a perfect early fall day,
the air and grass cool, wild sunflowers blooming in the strangest places around the house,
we frolicked around the backyard taking pictures of each other.
to my Kansas.
