MARIE’S OFFERING:

MY GOD, MY GOD

His beauty
shines like the very sun,
my eyes cannot fully take it in.

Withholding
His brilliance from no one,
His warmth springs forth to thaw the cold heart.

“Ebb and flow”
this phrasing un-embraced
by my God, whose love does not ebb, but

unrestrained,
His mercy has no bounds,
as the sea lacking Earth’s gravity.

WALT de CRYSTALLINE:

FLOURISHING FLORISTS

Impressive
works of worded wonder;
hearts and flowers come to touch our souls.

The poets,
hearts full of emotion,
overflowing in oceans of thought

completely,
they are sweetly given.
Loving blossoms bloom in our garden,

tenderly
grown to fill our vases
with verses; love’s beautiful bouquets.
