haiku my heart

Morning glory bud
sleeps and then it shows its face

in western Canada morning glory are white and the most hearty of weeds, beautiful, but making misery under the soil for the rest of the tenants.. yet even as a girl in California i had seen these blue beauties, opening only one day as our white faces. I always wanted some in our northern garden, but we must lack the hrs sunshine, or perhaps we are too wet a clime. I understand they do not take over, but are a more polite guest than ours. I still love their sunny, luminescent glory, Creten blue, wildly cheery..

Oh, how I long to see the Morning Glories blooming! In northern Arizona we won't see them until well into the summer! Beautiful!!!

My mom grew these and I always thought they were magical. I love anything blue!

I love its 'blueness'! There's something glorious in a bright new day. It's great motivation for a lethargic like me.

Beautiful words!! When I see the morning glories in my yard I always greet them saying "Morning, Glory!!" of course!! And aren't they just that - the morning's glory?

That is the most vivid, cheerful shade of blue. AND, I think that your haiku is really well-written ;) You know, when ever I come to this site, I always look at your banner pic for awhile - I like it!
