I live next to a window where the sun shines down on me. Oh, how I worship its life-giving, everlasting glow! Each day I try to bend down further so my blooms can be close to the glass and warmth of rays. But, soon before I know, I'm turned around to face the room where precious light is low. Now I must work so hard each day to seek the sun for sure; begin my driven task of rising up again, endure the plight of struggling, turning, twisting, for I am resolved to standing tall again, then leaning in, more sun procure. But, 'they' seem pleased my upright beauty, for a while, is solved! Sandra M.
