A Burst Of Sunshine

Sometimes when the weight of the world is heavy all it takes is a small burst of color to remind one to stop, and, if not smell the flowers, to spend a little time admiring their intricacy and beauty. How can things seem dark and gloomy when gazing at the brilliant color of this one sunflower?  We can think of ourselves as solitary flowers or we can realize that we're merely a petal, a leaf, or part of a stem but we're all rooted together in the soil. Together we are a burst of sunshine that does away with the darkness and gloom.
