I threw some Sunflower seeds in my neighbors back yard
and they grew and grew and grew

They grew so much that they covered up the graffiti on their garage and covered up their trash

Well it made the neighbors mad that they couldn't see their crap

So they went and got an axe and cut the Sunflowers down
but some seeds fell out of the heads and the Sunflowers grew and grew and grew

And the neighbors tried to cut the Sunflowers down again but the axe refused and the neighbors tried to burn the axe and the fire wouldn't burn

And the Sunflowers grew and grew and grew until they covered up all that was bad and all that made people sad..

And the neighbors moved away. Ha!

The Monster in the Lake

Deep under the water was a silo where a monster lived.

He quietly swam out in Summer and ate tourists and locals on the lake. Not all of them, just enough.

And then he hibernated all Fall, Winter, and Spring...
Floating in his watery abode..

I sat by her grave today and threw bread crumbs out for the birds.

Her name was Gertrude and she was born on January 7, 1904 died February 19, 1916. Just a child..

I bring her flowers on holidays and on her birthday. I'm sure that all who loved her are gone.

I wonder silently to myself every time I am there, "How did she die? Does it have anything to do with the baby's grave next to hers? " Or is that a coincidence?

Even though we have never meet in life, I feel a connection to her.

Maybe it's because we are both alone.

Two wonderful stories. Especially "Gertrude". Grave yards are beautiful places for "meeting" people.
