23 September – Uninvited sun

I wonder which bird it was that dropped their tea
in the terracotta pot under the viburnum tree?
For we certainly didn’t plant a sunflower seed,
and although of course I wouldn’t say it was a weed,
one is flowering uninvited all the same.
But as drizzle sets in, and our remaining blooms fade,
it’s fabulous to find a brand new sun displayed,
so we welcome it gladly though it shines out of place,
a beautiful surprise; an unexpected grace.
