Sunflowers on every road
Hues of yellow hay and shine
Facing the sunlight
Making merry with brightness
Limited time happiness
I’m an NRI currently residing in the Netherlands. The weather in this country is completely different from my native land. I miss the tropical weather of my homeland terribly. But summertime in the Dutch country has brought in some respite. It has made me realize that summers are full of childhood memories and happy times, across the globe.
My favorite part about the summers is the sunflowers blooming in all their glory.
I’ve tried to bring forth the beauty and the nostalgia that sunflowers represent in the Tanka form of poetry here.
