Sunflower

 

(For Mum 7/8/12)

 

sunflower

open to light

left here

in the churchyard

where

your memory

lingers in

calmness...

i remember...

this is a sacred hour

your sunflower gave

you great joy...open...

beautiful

like your soul now

open to higher light...

a treasured photo

you...in our

garden with the flower

resplendent in

creation as your

nearness draws aside

the veil to where

the eternal are...

 

George Coombs
