Morning Glory

A Poem by carl
"

looking at an old photo I took years ago

"
Morning Glory:

Morning glory in a spring face,
golden framed photo memory 
of future splendor to embrace-
a promise of full beauty to be.

Close by a hedge apple tangle,
regrets posing as a dark dream
skirting a stained crown bramble-
a painting of past long forgotten.

G'mornin', Carl🌤

Nothing's more beautiful than the wonder of a morning glory, whether flower or the morning's first gentleness aglow 'pon a lover's sweet face … both of which is easily perceived dancing in the easy flow and vivid imagery of your verses' poetic voice.

Thank you for sharing this most lovingly rendered piece.

The past is long forgotten, but the sentiments are lasting. Even during sober afternoons, one may reminisce in a morning that belongs to their longing past, if the strokes of wind are strong enough to deliver our mind back in time. Thank you for the pleasant read, author carl, it was fun.

A lovely snap shot of a spring country scene. But the name made me think this might be a rude one lol!

I have recently remembered something long forgotten too and it has been constantly on my mind ever since.
It was only a name from an old class photo (the teachers name) but as she was only a young teacher at the time, I have found myself editing her life ever since into a story I hope ends in a very long and happy retirement.
She was a favourite of all us kids and sadly, we believed that all teachers would be as kind.
Boy, where we wrong! 😊
Keep enjoying your newly found old memory Carl.

I love looking back on old black and white photographs, the ones with scalloped edging, borne from sepia tone afternoons of long ago. Though they are stilled, they capture and hold my breath for the briefest moment...

I love old photos...love looking at them and imagine the people and places shown.
All so alive at the time the photo was taken.
This poem is like a really old black and white...the best.
