Sunflower - Poem by Joy Grate

She wakes everyday
the right side of
the bed, facing east

Throughout the day
she sways to the motion
of light and shadow

At dusk she fades
petals leaning down
with graying skies

Night is her anguish
pangs of neglect
sharp as the darkness

No one understands
her diurnal emotions
but the Sun
