Sunflowers Basking in Light

Bedding against the granite wall...

In defiance of the gravelly ground
crumbs of weathered granite wall,
among quarrelsome arable terra firma
for seeds, roots and sowing...
determined sunflowers nourish,
basking efflorescence in light.

In courage among former rock-bound
dregs of paltry earthen landfall,
toiled agreeably brushing desert delta
mesh arid, rocky to growing...
destined inflorescence flourish,
upward thrusting to height.
