Sunflower Girl

You were a sunflower

You moved with the sun

Followed it, dawn till dusk

You knew where you were headed

Towards the light

You were brave and beautiful

Tall and confident

You were a sunflower

Born and raised with the sun


You held your head up

High up

High up in the clouds

Thoughts scattering

Like dying petals

Your mind wandered-

Weaved through the clouds

Dreaming

 

You danced with the day

Dreamt with the night

You twirled in

Sun-bathed afternoons

Your radiant glow

Holds a beauty-

A dazzling, modest burst of light

 

You wonder why the sun has left

Slipping away, unnoticed

Tip-toeing

Leaving behind a fire of

golden

ember

peachy

footsteps

In the milky sky

 

A musky orb appears

At first invisible

There

Not there

Then

Placing itself surely

Up in the constellations

Dangling among swirls of

Endless diamonds

 

You turn and turn

Bowing your head

Uncertain

You wonder things…

 

Do you often dream how it would be

if you were

a tulip

or a daisy

instead?

 

Do you often wonder

why your journey

is so desolate, forlorn?

 

You stare into that abyss

A look of longing

Stretched across your face

 

You wished you could fall

Fall backwards

And gently land among the stars

 

But you were a sunflower

You moved with the sun

You followed it, dawn till dusk

You knew where you were headed

Towards the light

You were brave and beautiful

Tall and confident

You were a sunflower

Born and raised with the sun
