Grow

Blooming Morning Glory
I wasn’t there to plant this spring.
The morning glories didn’t care.
They’re back again off climbing where
I left some soil.  No watering
But they still rose. It’s comforting
That when I fail they ever grow
Although forgotten.  Watch them show
Their bright green leaves each like a heart.
I see the buds break out and start
To bloom again. There! Off they go.

  1. I agree with the other commenters and enjoyed the enjambments and caesuras. Those morning glories growing despite your “failure” is comforting. It reminds me of how we may not need to do as much as we think, to put so many expectations on ourselves.
