Speaking of Obligations....(7) the sunflowers

I love the sunflower dance.

In films that squeeze a day’s light
into my attention span
I see their heads move from east to west
in a pas de deux with the Sun.

My own limbs long for this sweet motion,
matching step for step the light around.

Perhaps with the right camera I might find
that even my hair has some inner rhythm,
has a way to keep up with sunflowers
dancing through an endless summer.

(Seventh in a series on the Long Obligatory Prayer.)
