Nightblooming Cactus

She opens secretly in the dark
And waits silently through the night
To show herself at dawn's first light.
During the bright morning hours,
She displays her delicate color
And glorious form of splendor.
By noon, she begins to close
And hide again her magnificence.
A short-lived call to reverence.
