Glorious

Morning Glories
Norbert Krapf

First thing
summer mornings


I would come out
to the porch,
tiptoe down the steps,
pad barefoot
across the grass

Stand behind the trellis
and look up to see
how many of her
morning glories
had opened.




They were so blue


and pure, beaded
with dew

as if miniature
gateways to the skies
head swayed open

allowing me
to ramble
into infinity.

Beautiful pictures and perfect words that I can totally relate too--Morning Glories are a favorite from my childhood, and I have got to get some of my own planted, I have missed them!

I used to have those morning glories and I would love how they would open in the morning and then go to sleep in the afternoon.
