POEM: Sunflower Trilogy2012-07-21 at 12:54 am Blog RSS
This was composed for the CPC Saturday Share poetry challenge. Angel Love’s must-use line was “Sunflowers are a beautiful sight to see.”
The sight of sunflowers can’t be beat:
bigger than daisies, taller than wheat.
They grow strong in the sunshine’s heat.
Their sight brings dreams of a salty treat;
a heat-beating treat all love to eat.
You can tell the world in one long tweet:
it’s not just love that keeps you sweet.
(although that’s always a nice treat!)
To meet your desire’s certain someone,
and not end up with just a numb one,
heed this advice to win your peach:
go sunbathing on the beach;
keep your round parts within reach;
put sunflower seeds upon your seat.
Sunflowers bring me to my senses
when I see them peaking over fences
Sometimes I think they’re staring at me
and that they should definitely be
arrested for peeping offences.
One of Mother Nature’s best inventions,
they can dismiss worries and tensions.
I love to watch them dance in the sun.
Then I ring the doorbell twice, and run,
before her father comes out with his gun.
This poem has made too many mentions
of nonsense which defies declensions.
I should have warned before the start:
sunflower seeds can make one fart.
