Sunflower

A certain sign of summer’s laid-back ways,
Just weeks since they began from dull seed pods,
Maturing into stalks of golden blaze,
Adorning garden paths and porch facades.

Sunflowers, noble blessings from the gods,
Perennially loyal to a fault,
Inch by inch, defying all the odds,
Sprouting tall and noble, without halt.

Yet some disdain this beauty as assault,
A weed-like nuisance cropping up each year,
This heavy-headed bloom that I exult,
Some oft ignore or wish it wasn’t there.

I worry not what others may eschew,
I treasure each new seedling breaking through.

    Love the sunflower, I planted some seeds in Pete’s honor, but they are not coming up, I pray they will as your poem says love it
