Written for:  Carpe Diem #1717 Sunflowers

bruised sunflower
it bowed its head to deep –
departure of summer

in the light of dawn
sunflowers reach to the blue sky
praising their Creator

And a last one from my archives:

broken sunflower
torn apart through a rain storm –
puddles on the path

Here is my attempt:

I have my eye on you
a sunflower’s velvet center
tilted up toward sun


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
