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.

    The words in this poem flow together just as naturally as the colors in this flower and paint just as beautiful an image.
