What remains of Summer
is this Sunflower
It’s a multihead
and it’s halfway dead
For a few seasons what’s seen
of this tree is mostly green
As each leaf turns into a yellow heart
We know full well it’s about to depart…
…to the portal of the eternal
“To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars.
I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.
2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God. 3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.”
“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”
