Bloom in Any Weather

Iron sunflower stands tall above all.

Greets the small and greets them

Well.  Metal monster sets the stage.

Not much paint, but who needs

Decoration when you stand in the

Wind and rain, tornados, too!

Creatures can’t invade your walls,

Except the ones that are real small.

A tower of strength sets the stage.

The power of age resides true power.

What it’s seen in all these years,

Older than any tree around here.

    1. Thanks! I was imagining some type of tall storage bin. The sunflower just gave it more personality. Glad you liked it, and appreciate the compliment. 🙂

  1. Nicely done, Gordon. I saw the prompt and meant to go back to. I just didn’t. I, too, saw a sunflower. Perhaps because I had just done the “standing ovation” sunflower piece. So I wanted more time to distance myself from that poem. But then I forgot. Until I saw your post, that is.

    You’ve done a nice job of capturing the “oldness” of it…and the sturdiness of it. I liked it!


    1. I loved your other standing ovation poem! glad you liked my poem,too. thanks for the compliments. i tried to analyze every aspect oc the artificial creation. seemed nothing else to do. 🙂

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment! When I see a turbine of any kind, I see perpetual energy. And yes, this one captured the essence of a sunflower, truly. I didn’t catch this prompt in time, and you handled it nicely! Peace, Amy

  3. Thank you. I guess I have an interesting mind, because I was trying to describe what I saw in the picture. Although, minds do tend to wander. 🙂
