Morning Glories

Fresno, California

Twining around mailboxes and fence rows, morning glories’ delicate tendrils gently cling, holding up their fragile flowers to open up to the summer sun.  Later at dusk their colorful flowers wither shut, a poet’s metaphor for life and death. 

Because of it’s attention to the sun, the morning glory represents the Resurrection.
