A beauty

among the grassy knolls

A burst of sun

outshining all the others

How did you get here, dear sunflower?

Growing in the median

between two stretches of highway


You shouldnt be here,

it’s true you are a part of nature

but not this nature

I wonder if you know that?

That you are not a meaningless smog covered blade?

You are composed in an entirely different way.


The structural dynamic

that composes you

is head and shoulders above

your grassy comrades.

Does this make you better than all the others?

Either in thought or reality?

My heart longs to say yes,

but in reality your DNA

is the same

as those that surround you.



the beauty of you

shall forever

bring sanity

to my listless existence.
