moonflower

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1450 – Moonflower

by moonflowers
a fascinating body
floats absent-mindedly

© Matsuo Basho age 21 penname then ‘Sobo’.

fragile beauty
climbing against the fence
moonflower straightens
with her snow white blossom
to the Summer moon

Here is my attempt:

moonflower

white morning-glories
incandescent in summer
under watchful moon

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
