Girasoles sway in wind outside
the sad vacant house across the street.
They are very high, almost filling
spaces where small thin children played.
Their shrill cries, their shouts, floated across
the narrow street, assaulted my ears.
These tall sunflowers are so silent,
so quiet, so yellow, and so brown.
But now, gladly, I would trade them all
for another chance to see, to hear,
some new noisy children at their play.
Tomorrow I will help to clean up
that yard, may recommend new tenants,
other children, and I will not miss
these brown and yellow girasoles.

    We're at poles here: I'll take the sunflower, you the kids. Aging has made me intolerant of almost any kind of noise. And that includes Stravinsky's noise-maker the Rite of Spring. Little wonder it caused a scandal in France when first performed. Thanks for stopping by to read me. Best to you in your writing endeavors. / M

    Leo, oh your poem is wonderful, mother had sunflowers in her garden but they needed to be controlled as they go wild, your poem holds a sadness and a hope, 7 and thanks for visiting my poem, nearly the same, that was so weird to write in homophones, glad you understood it
