Morning Glory – A Poem

Morning glory- Image by Shigemi.J from

Ascending in plumes of amber frankincense tears,

August exhales penultima syllables in scented flares.

Kaleidoscope blooms open pollen garden apothecaries,

Prompting nectar flights from hive, larders, and fancy:

Where mint julep asters smile shasta daisies,

Fragrant phlox festoon the lilies of the valley,

And, blue star cultivars jig to morning glory;

Mixing floral Summer keepsakes of potpourri,

In warm earthen jars of the present odyssey.

  1. A garden treasure, soft and tender beauty. The Victorian age called her the flower of duality and the Chinese folklore of this flower symbolizes that lovers may only meet on one special day out of the year, symbolic of a restricted love.
    Morning Glory is a beautiful name and carries with it a simple and clear message
    (Tenacity and tenderness in all things, be gentle but strong in your endeavors with other people, animals and nature. Above all hold fast to your goals.)
    It has the power to overgrown everything so constant pruning lays heavy upon the Gardner’s shoulders.
    You captured every feature of her glory.
