Sonnet for a Sunflower

Wed, 10/19/2016 - 09:32 -- annaka

When depression begins to take its toll

I scavenge for earth, sun, and seed

I let it take root starting in my soul

A sunflower is all I need

 

Some days I can't get out of bed

But those are becoming rare

I have planted a meadow of sunflowers and let them spread

I look inside myself for happiness to bear

 

In the AM when the sun don't shine

I look to the window sill for a reminder

That I am lovely, I am divine

Like a sunflower, I make this world brighter

 

When darkness yields all the power

All it takes is one yellow flower

This poem is about: 
Me
