A Ramasami, resident of Serene Pelican by Columbia Pacific Community, describes the immense pleasure he once derived from glancing upon dancing sunflowers during a long drive.
As I was gazing through the speeding car,
A flash crossed across my eyes,
A beautiful mind-mending delight,
A colourful heart-filling display,
A never-ending brain activator,
A sight, lovely sight always to enjoy.
A sea of sunflowers fluttering and dancing,
Twisting, twinkling and thrilling sunflowers,
Gleaming, glowing and glittering sunflowers,
A miracle blooming on either side of the road,
A blissful vision for the gazing eyes,
A gleeful spectacle ever to remember, never to forget.
At the precarious hour of melancholy,
At the time, when spirits are at an ebb,
A ray of happiness flashed out of memory,
A gay of gaiety blossomed in the heart.
A recall, a sudden recall of gazing through a speeding car,
An immense pleasure of seeing the sunflowers along the drive,
A sprouting recollection from the slumbering subconscious,
Assuage a way out of depression leading to elated high spirits.
