Black-Eyed Susans

 

Scattered sun drops
Dot the earth
Stretching, reaching toward the sky
Gazing
With their one black eye
Nose cones pointed way up high
Petals burning sun-burst bright
Ready to rocket
Away
Good-bye
Back to the sun
In the far away sky

    Liz,
    I like the metaphor of a rocket for the black eyed susan. Great picture and well executed poem. Thanks for the post.
    Congratulations on keeping your promise to yourself of writing a poem a day.

    scattered sun drops! Love so much, and the rocketing away. A friend of mine recently describe black-eyed susans as “workhorse of the garden with a little show pony inside.” Love that too. Thank you for sharing!
