The Sunflower is a favourite emblem of constancy.

The sunflower is a mystery, just as every single thing in the universe is, by looking at the sunflower, you can see the whole universe in a flower. Light enchanted sunflower, who gazes ever true and tender, on the suns revolving splendour. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it, and that's such an admirable thing, and such a lesson in life. We are all golden sunflowers inside. Ah! Sunflower, weary of time, who counts the steps of the sun, seeking after that sweet golden clime where the travellers journey is done. The heart that has truly loved never forgets. I believe that there is something of the divine mystery in everything that exists. We can see it sparkle in a sunflower. We sense more of the unfathomable mystery in a butterfly that flutters from a twig or in a goldfish swimming in a bowl, but we are closest to God in our own soul. Like the sunflowers, when we follow the Savior of the world, our God, we flourish and become glorious despite the many terrible circumstances that surround us. Only there can we become one with the greatest mystery of life. In truth, at very rare moments we can experience that we ourselves are that divine mystery. He truly is our light. Here, the sunflowers, there the humming bird- equal seekers of sweetness. Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as humans and animals. The splendour of a human heart that trusts it, is loved unconditionally, gives God more pleasure than anything else. Sunflowers, the sight of thousands of butterflies in flight, or the scent of a million orchids in bloom. Trust is our gift back to God, and he finds it so enchanting and loves it. 

Who knows what may lie around the next corner? There maybe a window somewhere ahead. It may look out on a field of sunflowers also Sunflowers expire gracefully. Every friend is to the other a sun, & a sunflower also, at times they attract and at times they follow. Sunflower is the eagle of flowers, I see them stand, on the sun's noon- glory gaze, with eyes like that of sun, their lids expand, and fringe their disk with golden rays; though they are fixed on earth, and rooted in darkness, light is the element and the dwelling air feels like heaven. Sunflowers are cheery and happy flowers that make you feel better instantly whenever you look at them. It is one of the best flowers you can give to someone who needs instant encouragement. Each one of us have ups and downs in life, and a ray of hope and few encouraging words is what most of us live by every day, especially on a dark, cloudy day. Words have a great healing power to inspire and uplift anybody's mood instantly. They work well in all kinds of situations. If I were a flower... I would be a sunflower, to always follow the sun, turn my back to darkness, stand proud, tall and straight with kindness and courage.
