Shy flower daily God tends to your needs with the full sun of high summer caressing you with gentle persuasion to grow rain cascading from on high drips from leaf to leaf finally to land upon the fertile richness of mother earth where thirsty roots drink deep. Each day brings you closer to opening closer to your full bloom ringing the world with delicate perfume. Each dawn finds me in rapt adoration of the wonder contained within you each day I pray you will burst forth that every eye may witness God's grandeur and revel in your beauty yet I am content to await that glorious day. Shy flower you have but a season to reap life's rewards for beauty fades and sweet perfume becomes decay your petals will droop and fall to mother earth. The legacy left for the world will be but the memory of grace and beauty and your seeds, each promising, shy flower, you will have your season again.
BRAVO! I agree with Hoot Owl! Go with the free verse!
Not only that, the message to one you love is beautiful as well. The imagery of the water falling and nourishing....the whole piece paints a colorful and enraptured picture.
I am a Life Purpose Coach who specializes in assisting men and women to clarify their Life Purpose and then in turn live true to their purpose. After 5 years working with the Severely Mentally Ill in County Mental Health, I gave up the bureaucracy (and safe, secure blanket) of this environment to pursue my own purpose and passion.
I must admit that at first glance I was taken aback by seeing your name next to a title such as this one, my friend ... but I am glad I decided to read it anyway. This is a beautiful portait of the simultaneous strength and fragility of both love and the human spirit.
Well done ...
You cannot choose the way of your death, but the path you choose will determine its own end.
