Sunflowers – Rebecca Swan

Everyone longed for her

Many thanks to Rebecca Swan for her vibrant entry to the competition and Voices blog. Rebecca is a very creative person and writes ‘about a whole series of topics, ones that often link together in the end. Depression, anxiety, love found and love lost.’ We appreciate Rebecca sharing her poetic talents, and we are sure everyone will appreciate this vivid and imaginative poem.

SUNFLOWERS


  In a field full of sunflowers, 

she stood out the most. 

No one could ignore her colours,  

they loved her vibrance so.  

In a field full of sunflowers,  

she shone, she was bright. 

Everyone longed for her, 

even I wished she were mine. 

In a field full of sunflowers,  

I knew she was the one – 

because in a field full of sunflowers,  

they were just flowers, 

but she was the sun. 

Rebecca Swan, 15
