I am a sunflower, so my entire

existence pays tribute to you

You, in your Gilded Chariot,

and I, insignificant gold,

can do nothing but look to you


I am but a single flower and

your eye reaches out to all

We are connected

like seeds circling in a spiral


How I wish to break the cycle


I long for your pale sister,

The cold eye that radiates torches of ice,

But no matter how hard I try

Her song cannot touch my face

While the Rooster’s call

rouses my body


I reach for you, rising above the other greenery

How I wish that I could shrink

Your amber aura glazes across my face

How I wish that I would burn


The day I stop turning to you,

will be a sunny day for me

But, even when my petals wilt

and fall off

When all that remains of me

Is a single, solitary



You define who I am
