Memories of Morning Glories


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:

Childhood Memory

pink morning glories

adorn climbing vines

on Susan’s front porch
