24 August

when I wake my first steps lead me to the porch

and I see the morning glories blooming

one morning only and by early afternoon they are gone

all of that glorious creation

all of that stunning beauty

all of that magical celebration

for one morning only

how can i not notice each and every bloom

how can I help but be humbled by the wonder of our universe


  1. The morning glory over where you are are gone by early afternoon? The morning glory here in Hong Kong are visible still in the late afternoon! :O

  2. Nice to start the day with a beautiful flower !

  3. The exquisite beauty of a simple flower can be humbling.

  4. I see you follow the rule of micro-stories!

    They always let you with the sense of there is more to it!

    I would like to keep reading, but on second thought I know it would make the tale, shorter. Few words that fire new thoughts, new worlds; that's the goal.

    You are good at it!

  5. Hi,

    What a beautiful post. Your words go so beautifully with your photo. Great take combining both the themes.

    Have a wondeful weekend.

  6. inspiring post. it makes me realize, too, that things as beautiful do not last a lifetime and so we have to cherish the humbling experience.
