The blossoms

of the sunflowers


to greet the sun



And as the sun


across the sky

the flowers

turn and follow


And as the sun

goes down

the flowers

droop over

in mourning

                Hi S. I thought of 'orchid' for my user name - a flower that gives off a pleasant aroma! Then I made it into 'orchidee'.

                    Simple, but quite beautiful. Things are often best when uncomplicated. Great write!
