A Sunflower - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

Your beauty may not be that of an orchid or a rose
Among blooms on earth your face radiantly glows
Your cadmium petals surround a nucleus of energy
Attracting vast admiration of the highest degree

As a burning star is the center of our solar loop
So does the sunflower invite a circling group…
Birds of the wild excitedly discover and consume
Nourishing seeds without the benefit of perfume

Each morsel is held within a purposeful concourse
Designed with amazing calculations like the universe
When I look upon the phenomenon I have the pleasure
Of grasping an appreciation for a well-planned adventure
