Phototropism

Will sunflowers still

know who to search for, 

if the tanks march in?

 

They have a covenant with 

the sky, but their roots

are in the land, and

there's no guarantee 

they get to keep 

that title deed.

A very interesting, and clever piece.
I have a feeling that this has more to it than the plight of sunflowers "if the tanks march in".

Thank you, Stephen! 😊

I didn't know the word, but with the poem it makes perfect sense.
