It was early in the morning of 15 July, about a month ago, that I met with a young sunflower.
The stem was so thin that it was sustained by a pole.
This place didn’t seem to get enough sunshine, because trees were arrayed behind it.
I wondered why people planted it at such an inconvenient place, but named it “Skinny,” wishing it soon to grow up.
Then I had not noticed at it until this morning, because each time I jogged through the street I had been more attracted by beautiful morning sky or birds flying there.
But today my eyes were caught by a green object, despite that the time was earlier and it was darker.
It was grown up so big, together with its friend, and already had a bud at the top.
How a tough power living things have!
I devote this post to my friend Jennifer, who is now giving all her power to bring up two tiny lives. I believe the time, for a month or so, would help the tiny two grow up enough to stand up by their own, like these plants. So keep on your precious work, ganbatte-kudasai.
