June in Texas means that only the sturdiest flowers can survive. I think these hardy sunflowers imply a certain kind of optimism.

Sunflower

“…..Like every flower, she has a little
theory, and what she thinks
is up. I imagine the long
climb out of the dark
beyond morning glories, day lilies, four o’clocks
up there to the dream she keeps
lifting, where it’s noon all day.”
