2009: From the darkness to the light!

Sunflower Forest

The year that I thought
nothing could grow
in my heart.
I planted hybrid sunflowers:
Vibrant yellows, aged bronze,
blood-red maroon,
sunbursts of tangerine,
all alive in thick forests of stalks
four and five feet tall.
And when they burst
like chariots of the sun
full-speed into bloom
above the deck,
I smiled
at their exuberant profusion,
knowing that
even in my year of desolation,
they would turn their 
jewel-like leonine heads
to show me
the pathway of the sun
and point me lightward.
