Helianthus

 

In the dialed face

of the sunflower did rest

a reflection of the sun

light giving the plant

brilliance to digest.

 

Shimmer along yellow

petals gilding the rays

feathered out in fine detail

for the wandering eye

to celebrate.

 

The flower is a palette

contrasting the glance—

light and dark balancing act—

an optic harmony

to a sun-lit dance.
