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.
