The Sea of Sunflowers

By Aparna Bandyopadhyay

Contributory Author for Spark Igniting Minds

As we sojourned across terrains,

Those golden stretches held me awed;

Their faces turned to the fiery sun,

Those passersby with smile applaud!

They stretched afar in unending joy

Like a golden carpet spreading mirth;

I see myself at one with them,

Of inner spirit, with no dearth!

Tufts of clouds could never hide,

The sunflower's spirit and golden glow;

As is the inner steel within me,

Which lets me strive, even when slow!

Rooted to earth, they dare to rise

And face the sun at every dawn,

I learn from them to never say die,

That sea of sunflower does courage spawn!
