Entrancing Sunflowers

Lorna is a published writer with a particular interest in narrative poetry, which she finds therapeutic.


A soft warm breeze played around my ankles

As my bare feet felt the heat of summer on the well-worn grassy path

The scent of hazy days hung in the air - enticing

I smiled as I came upon you, in the midst of a sea of yellow

Glorious sunflowers whose petals reach out, craving attention

I rushed to join you, to dance amongst you

My carefree limbs twirling as the trace of a breeze kissed my face

I stand and marvel, drinking in your scent, savouring every moment

Experiencing this feeling of endless joy and pleasure

Where the beauty of life is omnipresent in this field of entrancing sunflowers

It is such a wonderful feeling to walk through a field of sunflowers. I was lucky enough to live in Tuscany for a few years and this is one of my favourite memories. We don't have the weather in Ireland to grow these beautiful flowers, however, you also have a lovely memory to cherish. Your comments are always appreciated Peggy. Take care.

Your poem about sunflowers is captivating. It made me remember the sunflowers that my grandfather used to grow. They always fascinated me how they turned during the day to follow the sunlight with their faces.
