Ten Thousand Suns
Poetry 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
bounce
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.
