“A Short Poem on Sunflower”


That little something on the ground,

No idea where it belongs,

Steadily opens its flower,

As if the flower was a sun on the Earth

Who follows the upper sun’s ways,

When it gets dark,

It closes itself so it can hide from the dark rays.

It is a flower no ordinary flower, but just a sunflower.
