The Funniest Flower

First Line:
“Are you laughing at me?”

“Yes,” giggled the two. “You’re the funniest flower ever! So droopy, with such a face! You’ll be stuck in a pot at the back. We’re gonna be on the bridal table.”

I hung my head, wishing I was fragrant and fragile like them. I sighed, longing for the sun. I watched him all day. None of the other flowers here were like me. I drooped even more. Why couldn’t I be in the sun anymore?

“Ssh! Here’s the bride!”

I turned my head to the beautiful angel. She picked me up, saying, “This one! I love sunflowers. I don’t care what granny says.”

She placed me gently among some green leaves. “Stunning!”

I was carried into warm light, just like my sun. Lightning flashed. Then, I was thrown into the air and caught by soft hands. “I’m next!”

I’d made a new bride. I smiled, holding my head high.

  1. I’m so happy for the little, ignored sunflower. How fortunate for her that she was the one the bride chose! Those two stuck-up orchids didn’t deserve to be selected. The happy ending is lovely, Leenna. 🙂
