Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Picture taken on a hike where this one sunflower was standing alone on a trail

I am so pleased and grateful to share my poem The Lone Sunflower that was published on Spillwords Press, thanks to Dagmara K., Director of Development and team for this honor and continued support of my work.

My grateful feet walk the besieged earth.
I breathe in the cool fresh air with raindrops pouring down on me.
Tears of
joy and sadness
held simultaneously
Imprinted in my heart.

Love pours forth
for the dying,
Arms open amongst bleeding hearts and tortured souls whose mother never taught them.

Loveโ€™s promise
is to
restore faith in humanity when weโ€™ve been shaken and
given up all hope,
but how?

I would be so grateful if you would go here to finish reading my poem at Spillwords Press.

Thank you so much for taking time to read my poem. I was hiking and stumbled on this sunflower that sat solo and invited me to pause to reflect and of course my mind wanders to the questions that none of us can make sense of but I continue to ask. I waited for answers and this is what came.
Once again, thank you truly Dagmara K. and your team that works tirelessly to publish beautiful poetry.

Blessings,

๐Ÿ’–

Cindy

I have attempted a ping back to your post re: our belated emojiku Sunflowers. I don’t know if the pingback has provided notification about the post. It’s all mystically magical and my cauldron of patience is running low!!! Have a great day My Friend.

Lovely poem, and so relatable, Cindy.

“โ€œI am God but I have no answersโ€.
Surely, God should know but instead I hear
โ€œSave your breath,
stay the course;
Anger never conquered battles foughtโ€.

That’s what I feel is His answer to me sometimes. That’s when I quit talking to Him for a while and just save my breath. I believe in Him don’t get me wrong, but I think sometimes He tells me to just shut up. So I do. I go silent. Thank you for the poem, sweetie.

First of all Cindaaaayyyy, that is a gorgeous sunflower and naturally you would be the one to find it standing alone in all of its awe and wonder. ๐ŸŒป I love this:

Loveโ€™s promise
is to
restore faith in humanity when weโ€™ve been shaken and
given up all hope,
but how?

Oh, how that speaks volumes to our hurting world right now. ๐Ÿ’– You captured the spirit and essence of our emotions right at this moment in time. Thank you for an empowering poem today my dear. You rock Mommy Nature!!! ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒฟ

Ohh Cindy your poem is so deep, on many layers..even your conversations with God, I found very stirring and painfully human…You capture the depth of sadness and despair, the weight of unanswered questions, the hope that is fading like the petals of this last sunflower. Powerful work Cindy…I was very moved.
