sunflowers
smiling at the sky
standing at attention

sunflowers
waving
at the harvest moon

smiling at the sky
praying for a miracle
moonbeams heed

standing at attention
home for Thanksgiving
man on the moon

How could I not write something about les tournesols (sunflowers)! We are asked to write a poem or story inspired by the above photo at MindLoveMiserysMenagerie’s Photo Challenge 184

A troiku is a new form of haiku created by Chevrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.

*Reference for Thanksgiving is for our Canadian Thanksgiving on October 9th.
