Sunflower Harvest

We Have Faith
The harvest will come

Gather in early nights with
Faith in Children
Faith in Sunflowers.
Neighbors gather
Passing rough seeds warmed in the August sun
We watch distant clouds rolling
hands peeling, sloughing death away
Food for darker days
Something thrives here in dead sunflowers
In the damp earth
Our thumbprint on humanity
Our eyes are full of radiant gold,
