Sunflower

August 10, 2011 My Poetry Writing 2
We want walking to the Farmer's Market
on a freshly-made morning
And the muscians were dropping their scatter of silver notes
And the jams glowed in their jars
And the lettuces spread their frills like flowers.

You told me of all the fruits they
made the princesses eat
In their dragon-encircled tower,
And I bought you a sunflower
Because sunflowers are too big to be graceful
And too yellow to be beautiful
And they always look happy,
Like I am when I'm with you.

And now I live in a house
with sunflowers planted outside
And you live in the sunset
and I see you in the glinting reflections
and I Miss You.
