Keeping Up Appearances

Linda McClure Dunn

Morning glory blossoms persisting
in the habit for which they were bred,
opening to light, closing against dark,
old growth discarded beside the road
determined, though rootless, to go on
preserving the illusion of life.


Linda McClure Dunn has always loved to write, won essay contests in high school, and is currently in a writing group. She was formerly on the staff of Franklin, Tennessee's The Review-Appeal.
