Helianthus (Poem)

Today's poem is from Neruda's Memoirs: Poems (T.S. Poetry Press, 2011).


un tournesol: turn with
the sun and see no shadow
on a day's path traced
flowering head the whirling
worshipper of unbent light

Meditating for even a moment on a flower that "see[s] no shadow" refreshes me. Thank you for writing and sharing this. -Bethany Rohde
