In All Its Glorious Hibiscus-ness

On my way to Starbucks Wednesday morning, 
I was startled by the sunlit beauty of this red hibiscus 
outside the Sheraton Hotel entrance.
Newly bloomed, it stood tall and proud to greet
the morning as it rose from behind the
downtown buildings. Just beyond, a hotel limo
and a line of African cabbies were also
prepared to begin the day's business.
