Random Poem: Sunflower
by Amanda Conlogue

time drags me down until
I'm rooted to this spot
listening to voices
drone on, bumblebees
buzzing by still flowers
my heavy-weighted head droops
a slouch of surrender
acceptance of stillness
I watch the sun rise and set
warm sunlight dwindling
into cool twilight twinkle
of stars and jet vapor trails cut
silver ribbons through ever deepening
blue sky, I sigh, a breeze
rifling through petals and leaves
waiting for my love to come along
and take note of me beyond
the stillness and quiet and pluck
me up from the soil
