Do you know how to make them?
They’re supposed to be light
bright and full of vitamin C.
Everyone says you just glow
after eating one. My friend
had a shinning recipe I kept
asking for. Suncakes stop you
from being cold, lost in frost.
I remember something about filling
golden pans with flowers, seeds…
sunflower seeds. Bake at
high noon, of course. If only
there were a suncake now to
have with hot cocoa. My friend
is so lucky wintering in Spain.
Who gave her that recipe anyway?
I’m the one who’s freezing!
