    Poet’s Corner: Morning Glories

    Brilliant, bell-like,

    twisting one by one,

    rising, and stemming,

    praising every sun.

    In soil thick

    with clay and stones,

    rooting what’s theirs

    to anywhere,

    they fade at noon

    and face with dignity

    each near defeat.

    Meek and unpampered,

    solid blue and white,

    they thrive quietly

    in soft light’s gaze,

    and grow untended,

    calmly feeding

    on what’s left behind,

    as if to understand, they

    grow from what they find.
