Sunflowers and Silence

by on May 14, 2020 :: 0 comments

sunflowers the color of bees
seen with your eyes
wide open,
green eyes, green they
made you uneasy, I
changed them to
blue
but baby don’t
you make
my brown eyes –

space, wide open
and silence
seen but not heard
then suddenly not seen
don’t come knocking
I’m not home anymore
close your eyes
check the
garden, out back
beneath the

sunflowers

and doesn’t it sting, shhhh

A stinging retort for a blind bumbler. – mh clay
