A Brooding Sunflower

As summer turns to Autumn,

and Autumn turns to Winter,

snow covers the sun flowers in my garden,

glistening in the sunlight.

I watch from my kitchen window,

with brooding eyes,

the world turning white with snow.

Memories of summer days spent

lounging on my patio ,

swimming, and

grilling with friends

Come to the surface.

I lay in waiting for the snow to melt,

for the snow storm to pass,

to not feel trapped in my own home,

to be able to open my front door,

and explore the world once again.

Lay in waiting for the storms of my mind to pass,

to not feel trapped in my life,

to be able to open my front door,

and explore the world once again.

  1. I am a little late working through the dVerse OLN trail, but I am glad to find your poem here. To feel trapped in a life is a difficult circumstance, gratefully such times are usually transient except in the most impenetrable of prisons. The thing about a life trapping you is that wherever you go, there you are. I think flowers are powerful and beautiful creatures the way they demand notice so boldly to extract their slice of life from the skies for the brief sojourn. You have shown that so well here. We both put the flowers on the trail for this prompt. Are those Georgia sunflowers in your picture? If so then that is a pretty impressive Georgia snow, we had one like that in Alabama about 7 years ago. Be well 🌻 ❄️
