Sunflowers (poem and painting)

Sunflowers
watercolour on paper
11″x15″

all across the fields in summer

sunflowers raise their heads

following the sun’s unmatched splendour

challenging Horus with golden crowns glowing

filling the island with bright gleaming orbs

millions of sunrises and millions of sunsets

the short-lived sunflowers

enrobe the red land

giving short-lived summer

the seasonal upper hand
