Sea of sunflowers
by Laura Zucca-Scott

A sea of sunflowers
Running through
Open country roads
The sun cooking the tired soil

My eyes linger on one flower
It stands out
The head slightly turned away
Indignant or rebellious
I don’t know

And yet I like this little guy
Among many
Standing alone
Braving the heat of a summer day
