Yellow Flags

A winding road
had brought me back
to yellow flags
that grew the sun
out of the rain.
Forgetfulness
had left them there
to multiply
like bread and fish
for proof of faith.
Again I paused
and passed them by
golden moments
waving me on
without farewell.

Nature Insight: Waiting with Ipomoea

Ipomoea nil

Hiding in the dusk, in the dark, in the dawn, I turned around and there it was. After a summer of waiting, unexpected under cloudy skies, boldly blue and momentary, I saw the morning in all its glory.

(Writing note: Another lesson in patience and faith. Finally had my first morning glory flowers yesterday, September 28th! Hopefully the frost will hold off as the vine is covered in buds.)
