Ten Thousand Suns
By John Cannon

Ten thousand suns
bursting round our pond
this September day;

The tickseed sunflower
is in full bloom;

Glistening yellow petals
against deep-green
saw-edged leaves,

Stalks of maroon,
bobbing and weaving
with every wisp of wind,

Making the flower-suns
and sparkle
in the clear fall light;

The pond
is totally surrounded
by this vibrant yellow halo,

Gently swaying
and flashing rays of joy
to all with open hearts.
