Morning Glory

Blue-fire trumpet
perking her young velvet,
little blossomed bud
new & blue-brite kind,

strung noble on her vine.
Plucked, not plumped-up
or blushed
fully Heavenly yet.

Blue-Whirling flame
of hot-cool Heaven fire.
Royal & sweet hot-oiled,
delicately spread—
open

for the inhale of morn.
Petal peeled back,
downcast
blues lighting leaves &
fading,

then picked again,

for this.
