Daydreaming on a Dreary Winter Day

Dreaming

Of warm soft breezes

Where colorful flowers

Dance to the sound of birdsong

Springtime

FLOWERS

Flowers erase frowns and

Lift spirits.

On days when the

World seems colorless and

Everything is dreary, flowers

Remind us to

Stop, smile, and seek beauty everywhere

The Rarity of Christ

Flowers, white, yellow, orange

As I search among the flowers bright

Looking for one unique and pure

I find it a most useless plight

As I search among the flowers bright

In all effort, as hard as I might

I do my search long and very sure

Finding tis only one truly right

As I search among the flowers bright

Looking for one unique and pure

Triolet

( For only Christ is truly pure and righteous and only He will last eternally )

Based on 1 Peter 1:24

For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away

Garden Graces

Tiny yellow flowers blooming in garden

Cheerful tiny blooms

A scattering of yellow

Birds plant flower seeds

Haiku

Not sure how these pretty little yellow blooms came to be here in my garden, as I didn’t plant them, perhaps the birds carried some seeds and dropped them here. I am not sure if they are weeds or flowers, but I am enjoying the sight of them as they add a bit of color to my otherwise non blooming garden area right now.
