M is for Moonflower

Photograph by Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

At night you slowly unfurl
releasing your sweet scent
into a dark world

Few have seen you
in full glory invisibly
glowing beneath moons rays

Inexplicably you
thrive with the many
and varied creatures of the night

Into our dreams
you creep and seek
to draw romance into our lives

Your magic surrounds us
your mystery astounds us
until morn you hide away once more

    It’s a beautiful, dainty flower. I’m admit I hadn’t heard of it before.

    1. Thank you Sadje! It’s a large but delicate flower that grows profusely as a vine. I have several that are in full bloom each summer. 😊

        Perhaps I’ve seen air but didn’t know what it was.
