A recent visit to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai reminded me of my first encounters with morning glories as a child. I believe they were pastel colours: pinks and pale blues—not as vibrant as most currently displayed in public domain photo galleries.
The first verse of ‘The Morning Glories’ by Madison Julius Cawein resonates:
They bloom up the fresh, green trellis
In airy, vigorous ease,
And their fragrant, sensuous honey
Is best beloved of the bees.
For the full poem, see Public Domain Poetry.
I recorded my memory in a simple haiku:
pink morning glories
adorn climbing vines
on Susan’s front porch
