POEM: “sunflowers”

sunflowers”

charcoal heads droop, their glowing halos 
weighted with the heft of so much cheer

petals flame this dinner table hearth
lightening the heart of this happy home

sunshine yellow arms outstretch to embrace 
or supplicate, cut from their grassy beds,

their tendrilled roots removed, replaced, 
stabilized instead by a shallow red glass

its life-giving water dries up all too soon
