"Autumn Sunflower" by Kim Back-kyum

Autumn Sunflower

 

                                                                                         Kim Back-kyum

 

Though your body withers your spirit shines bright like the sun,

Oh autumn sunflower, like a phoenix you will shake off the confines of existence

like the poet standing in the field

blooming poetic words like petals
