Sunflower Days

morning in the city
alley cruising on garbage day
scavenger man nods and smiles
me working up a sweat
him all business
sentry of sunflowers
keeping watch

One Good Thing - a sunflower day

Spending time in Denver over the Labor Day weekend, I rise early to exercise before heat bears down on the city. A Latino man in a white pickup is out early, too. I "meet" him several times as I run my route. He enters and exits the alleys, looking for cast-offs left behind garages and on curbs. We "recognize" each other in passing. 
A sunflower morning unfolds for us both.
