The Secret of the Sunflowers
is one that my mother knows.
How their gaze forever follows the sun,
the more that they grow
and glorious they become!
The late afternoon shadows lay forgotten behind,
they remind me of where our mother taught us
to always turn our minds.

‘Seven times’ ~ A poem for my younger siblings
I have fallen in love seven times.
Seven pairs of eyes that blinked open
and looked back into mine.
My heart expanded into spaces
I did not know I had,
as your entire hand curled
around my single finger pad.
I no longer had but one shadow,
I smiled down to see now two.
Over the years,
your bodies changed and grew,
