((( The Flower))) - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

She's a standout in a ground full of weeds...
Tall-lithe stem-ever so green-
Dew covered leaves glisten in between-
A brillant blossom ablaze in this Pastoral scene;

A beauty so elegant-so very rare--
Filling the landscape that once was so bare...
With colours and perfumed aromas so very fair...
If you look very closely-They're simply everywhere;

Planted in the sod by Gods own hand--
For He 'tis the Creator of this green-natured land...
Such a Regal Beauty in the Garden-she stands--
He's given us this Flower-so very grand;

    Very nicely written Theo. Flowers are Gods way of giving us all of
    the colors of the rainbow. They wave back and forth so freely in the
    gardens, alongside the roads, and even on the hilltops and also down
    in the valleys. Colorfully written. (Report) Reply
