Morning Glories - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

morning glories
in slight breeze
young girls in
their shy years
try day by day
to smile to sweetheart
through their smitten hearts
a field of morning glories
dance in silence
subdued dance
in the morning quiet

    I broke my wedding cake plate today
    full of morning glories and every birthday
    wish for the past twelve years -
    my mother's got broken on my wedding.
    Fluted milkglass.
    She buried it by the dogs.

    I love it, John. This seems to be the day for morning glories. Did you read the poem I posted, 'My Words? ' This is beautiful.
