  5. A very interesting take on this … nicely done.

  6. I think it’s a vanity that’s acceptable.. 🙂

  7. This is very good – it’s a fun image but with a warning about the perils of vanity and how quickly beauty fades.

  8. huh! I can think of worse ways for a priest to exhibit vanity. ))

  9. WOW what an extraordinary response on this haiku MMT. Even priests fall for the beauty of morning glory. True vanity … can also be in praise of God.
