Sunflowers

Sunflowers are my favourite flowers. Hands down.

If you were to check my camera uploads, it is clear that I photograph them often. With their bright colour and beautiful form, how could I not?

A little while I decided to write a poem inspired by my the flower, and how we as people, may in some way relate to them.

– Sunflowers

Like a sunflower we follow light,
we wake at day
and sleep at night.
Some of us stand small,
smaller than the rest.
Others grow tall,
reaching for their best,
to be the biggest stem in the field.
Working hard we grew,
trying to outshine the sun
(something a flower cannot do).
Our fresh petals
burned by its scorching glare,
yet some forget their lesson
and the bravest dare
to go at it again,
to grow how they please,
maybe they will soon be
one day at ease.
