Today... 'A Cluster of Henna Blossoms'


A cluster of Henna and Camphire is He
The Son of God Who came down to earth for me.
No greater love has any man ever known
Than the love that Jesus for me has shown.

With fragrance so sweet and blossom so fair
None with my Belovèd can ever compare.
For the One that descended down from heaven
stands unique amongst the races of men.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Song of Solomon 1: 14
My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi.

Song of Solomon 1: 14
My lover is to me a cluster of henna blossoms from the vineyards of En Gedi.

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as

Which severs those it should unite;
