An Oblation of Sunflowers by Marianne Adrielle Tiongson

"And when the sunflowers bloomed, 

No one asked, 'Which is the smartest sunflower of all?'

''Which sunflower took more time to bloom than it should have?'

'Which sunflower experienced the most failure?['

 For all blossomed equally exquisitely eventually 

Instead, there was a man, naked arms outstretched, hands open head tilted, eyes closed lips parted in half-spoken offering 

An oblation of sunflowers"
