Sunflower staring (at you)

This is a sunflower, staring at you. It really loves you. And it depends on your virtues, without you it is in the middle of the night (look at the dark background). Look how it glows because of you. Take good care of it.

Everything happened all of a sudden.
All of a sudden daylight beat down on the earth;
There was the sky all of a sudden;
All of a sudden steam began to rise from the soil.
There were tendrils all of a sudden, buds all of a sudden.
And there were fruits all of a sudden.
All of a sudden,
All of a sudden,
Girls all of a sudden, boys all of a sudden.
Roads, moors, cats, people...
And there was love all of a sudden,
Happiness all of a sudden.

Orhan Veli Kanik, "All of a sudden".

All of a sudden I have a sunflower. How did you know this was just what I wanted...the one flower I cannot grow on my terrace.

:-) All yours then.
How we know, I don't know. Epistemology is too much for me ;-)
I use to find sunflowers growing wild on wastelands all over the town.
The heliotropic flowers are hypnotic to me, and the symbols they can derive.
