With one look they can change people's woeful despair
with their oversized petals of gold, unaware
of attention they garner with impassive flair
by the odd passers-by,
a hushed whisper of wind gently sweeps without care,
as if nothing's awry.
As the sun tracks the sky, it is followed by those
pretty sunflower faces, together they pose
in a field of poetry harboring prose,
and if only they could,
they'd uncover their stalks and set out for, who knows?
without limits, for good!
