Writing Wings For You

Sunshine Faces 


You came back

As promised

My heart filling 

With delight

At the sightsight of you

What a sweet surprise

To gaze up at your magnificence

And see your radiant bulbous face

Staring back at me

This is going to be

A most wonderful summer

Of sunshine and splendo 
While watering my sunflowers’glorious towering stocks I found this beauty peeking from the back row clamoring for my attention. What a surprise and a sweet reminder of my journey with them last year. It was my way of dealing with my dad’s death and feeling him close to me. It was also a most wonderful way to “live poetry” by watching their cycle and comparing it to my own 

I live poetry challenge for you:  Watch a life cycle of something from beginning to end. It doesn’t have to be flowers or even plants..maybe butterflies or turtled or kids. Record it by drawing or writing or pictures.  It is the act of recording in some way and comparing and contrasting it to your own that keeps you present and observant…looking at things in a new way.

Words are powerful and hold the keys to bring healing, play and joy, making life extrordinary. Words can also shift the world into a better place. I am a writer; a storyteller and a relatioship coach; buidling better relationships from the inside out so we can have more joy, communication and love in our lives. Let's explore! Let's create! . ~ Love, Marie Lukasik Wallace

  1. They were lovely words and the sentient behind resonated with me since I have recently lost my dad, well last November. I have grown sunflowers they are such magnificent flowers that do their own thing and fascinating when they lean and follow the sun we found. Your sweet ode and gesture I think to your dad was beautiful, and that’s why I am here today basically, to write again as he wanted me to – I had given it up. You have a lovely blog, varied.


    • Anita, thank you for sharing this with me. It’s nice to meet kindred spirits. That’s precisely why I fell in love with Sunflowers, because they not only remind me of my Dad, but their lovely way of being. I LOVE the sun too! I’m glad you are back to writing. I feel it’s such a creative and healing tool. Thanks for visiting. I have a feeling we’ll meet again.
