This week Colleen Chesebro’s #Tanka Tuesday Challenge 223 is a Themeprompt set by last month’s star poet, Kat who has requested we “Pick a Flower” and using one of the syllabic forms tell why it is so important to us.
The sunflower was the logo for my health business and traveling through France and Spain it was always wonderful to come across fields of the golden flowers as they followed the sun’s progress across the sky.
There is a wonderful legend about a young maiden who falls in love with the god Apollo and he sends a shaft of light that turns her into a sunflower, forever destined to track his progress across the sky east to west each day.
Butterfly Cinquain – Sunflower
of health and life
the sunflower brightens
every field that she graces.
by the ancients for golden oil
and her healing powers
she speaks to me
