Poetry Friday: Summer Surprise

We haven’t filled our bird feeders for months because we don’t want bears wandering through our yard, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still bringing us beauty and inspiration. I found this lovely visitor tucked into a corner that doesn’t get mowed. What better form than a Fibonacci for a poem about a sunflower?

A
dropped
seed, long
forgotten,
grows summer surprise:
one blossoming, buttery sun.

  1. Cognitive dissonance alert! I attached the pronoun “they” to bears and wondered how bears would provide “beauty and inspiration”!! Your sunflower picture and poem gave ME a surprise (and a laugh), too! Your form is perfect for your content — growing, opening, like a flower blooming.

  2. Charming fib!
    I saw a black squirrel hanging on a bird feeder that I haven’t filled in months yesterday and I wondered what it was doing. ?
    Unfortunately, they’ve never made any summer surprises for me…
