Your short bloom
Revived from last night’s gloom
Before the frosts come
I go out of my bedroom
In the morning hour
You are what I mostly want to hear
From your forbearing face
I read your hidden phrase
I may lower my body or bend down
But sure not to hurt your fragile chin
You open a tiny trumpet to sky
You spit out a sigh of relief – Ah, my light
Short of amazing beauty, yet to shine
Night is a long process into a shine
In worldly eyes you are something just feeble
But to me, you in subtle spirit even though small
Blooming of this flower revives from gloom. Very amazing sharing definitely. Wise sharing...10
the desirability of a moonflower blooms into conscious being in the night under a canopy sky
Last night's gloom! ! Thanks for sharing.
Wonderful poem, moonlight flowers have so much to give to those who witness them.
I only have heard sunflower now we got moonflower, and the moonflower poetry is really amusing like a center of night blooming its serenade here..very nice Zhang!
The word MOONFLOWER has a musical quality, just saying feels like spoken music. So I was cp, pletely ready to accept and join in your praise of it. It has many positive associations. It is a light in the night darkness, Its beauty os of thr quiet sort, you call it subtle but it is no less impressive for being plain and small. In fact, in this loud and boisterous world both here and in China the moonflower affirms the value of subtlety.

A beautiful piece, and the title Moonflower takes my breath away; it is poetic and hints at romance at the same time. Thanks for sharing, Cigeng.
