Sunflower


I stretch and stretch
thirsting for light
your love
quickening, quivering
through my veins.


My seed glows gold
with the passage of time
beating for you my love
half tempo rhythm and blues.
I open wide
search for those last rays
a memory of you
embossed upon my heart.
Oh lord, where are you?
Why do you leave
this pale shadow of yourself
in my night sky?

I bow to you
curl around my emptiness
And cry.
