Sunflower


Oh Sunflower so bright and yellow
Today you look lovely
Better each day
In the day you spread your petals
In the night you fold your petals like wings
In the spring you are most bright
As the weather gets warm
The brightness starts to fade
Petals fall
Leaves wither
Seeds deposited
For the next spring bloom
Thank you God for this miracle

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I wrote this poem whilst taking a job in the deserts of northern Sinai during the spring of 2014. During this time in certain places, sunflowers bloom in the hundred and thousands. I dedicate this poem to the wife Kiti.


Thank you.

With warm regards,
Laiakini Waqanisau

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
