sunflower poem

I'm always so hopeful.
sustaining content solidarity is a lesson.
to convince myself that alone is a strong thing,
a safe thing.
and the pen doesn't satisfy, nor the paper.
it's a splatter of ink on an already
messy sheaf of notes.
messing the rhythm
of notes and sighs that are my system.
A lone sunflower is so beautiful in a field of poppies.
Til the weight brings her head down,
and tears of seeds litter the soil.
