Random Poem:

A Sunflower
JoelJosol

On my way uphill, I saw
 1
a sunflower-
 2
petals spread out to the sun.
 3
 
 
Around a bend, sunflowers
 4
sway as dancing children
 5
to the wind.
 6
 
 
I still see them
 7
past the mounds of gravel
 8
from a nearby quarry-
 9
 
 
like the image
 10
of the day I saw you
 11
pretty as a sunflower.
