Hi. Sunflower Girl over here. It’s been weeks since I wrote Daily Musing 17: NBSB Adventure and today, I bravely pen my thoughts on having someone to care for. Like seriously? That expression has become jaded on my blog and I hope my readers will forgive the redundancy.
Sunflower Girl was previously Superwoman. Living in the fantastic fantasy world of her Superman. She didn’t regret dreaming in that orbit for too long, though, she was inspired and she was preserved, and that she is thankful for.
But today was a different day. Superwoman let go of her cape and superpowers. She realized that she is a mere mortal. And in order for her to attain nirvana, she must go down from her tower and feel the tingle and pain of the gravel, the grass, and the sand.
Then the sun shone its brightest and she bathes in delight to its glorious warmth and light. Ah, from that moment on, she decided that she will be a sunflower, bright and cheerful with the sunshine in her smile. She will hold the hand of her Sun and feel the pulsation from its veins, the heat, and the callousness.
She was overwhelmed at first because everything was new to her. The seriousness of the matter didn’t dawn on her and she doesn’t know how to react naturally, devotedly. But she prays for guidance, for enlightenment, and for strength. And she will learn. She will confidently adjust to the new ground.
The wind will sway her feeble petals, will rock her slim foundation on the soil, but her roots were stuck stronger. That is what she believes. Or hopes to believe. And she will bloom radiantly under the brazen rays of her Midnight Sun. She will embrace him just as she should be.
