haiku--By Patricia Nolan--United States

morning glories
spread their lavender wings
eyes wide open

  1. Absolutely beautiful! I LOVE morning glories and your description is perfect. Thank you for sharing. It makes me want to create a new pressed flower picture. You just may be interested in another of my creative sides poems like yours inspire. It is not a very well organized blog but you can see what I do with pressed flowers on Just copy and paste.

  2. Hello Patricia. I agree with Charlene that you describe the morning glories perfectly. I used to watch them climb up the screen on the pool in my former house. They do get sleepy in the afternoon, but always delight again the next morning. Excellent haiku! Best wishes, Carolyn
