Moon flower

At night in the garden
When everything comes alive
There is sweet song
It surrounds my heart.

Beyond the quiet end of day,
Whispering to the trees to pray,
Laughing with the moon flower,
Falling in love with the sunset,
Consulting with the moon,
Gazing up at the starry sky.

With my hand over my heart,
The hand other touching the earth,
Discovering the generosity
Here born of this Universe.

Its beauty caresses my soul
Then a gentle touch goodnight,
Like a beautiful dream beginning,
Moon colors blooming in mystery,
Only at night of an unreal light,
Translucent and pale.

And to my delight,
This moonflower tale
Bids me fair passage
To where we may dwell
We all once sail
On the moonflower pale.

Moon flowers (Botanical name: Ipomoea) are called moon flowers because they bloom in moonlight. Christopher shared these beauties with me whilst in his garden. They very large blooms and are a beautiful white flowers with a star-like shape. The flowers quickly open at night and last the entire night. They close when the sunlight touches their petals.
