Literary Calligraphy by Susan Loy

September Birth Flowers Selection - Morning Glories

Morning Glories

The ancient Sanskrit Salutation of the Dawn is attributed to Kalidasa, an Indian poet and dramatist who lived from 353 to 420 a.d. It was probably written in 400 a.d., yet its message to live each day to the fullest is as meaningful today as it was sixteen-hundred years ago.

"Look to this day for it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence: the bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendor of beauty. For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision, but today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope."  Sanskrit Salutation of the Dawn

Morning glory is the flower of the dawn; its flowers bloom early in the day and shut in the afternoon. Morning glory means affection in the Victorian language of flowers and is the flower of the month for September. Linnaeus named morning glories Ipomoea because of their resemblance to Convolvulus; however, ipomoea actually translates "resembling a worm," because of the flower's worm-like stems. Susan painted Ipomo ea indica (I. learii), morning glories that are native to both hemispheres and are commonly called Blue Dawn Flowers. The text is in blue, surrounded by a border of green and blue.
