Fuchsia

I’m certain fuchsia’s godly made

And if of this you need persuade

Direct your eyes toward setting sun

A desert moon, the clouds at dawn; warm hues and shades

 

The tiny pomegranate seed

There’s bougainvillea, grows with speed

Oh, don’t forget the peony

Then Phalaenopsis and sweet pea; ah, thistle weed

 

The Painted Desert tells the tale

Of God’s delight in color scale

He fills our senses night and day

This feast, a visual bouquet; along life’s trail

 

fucsia make-up

We humans long to imitate

This value God spoke to create

In sassy heels and boldest ties

In lipstick, eye shade to disguise; appear ornate

 

 

The truth is, no one can outshine

What’s generated from The Vine

No matter pattern, shape or hue

God’s eyes of love this brilliance view; through which we shine

    You list just some of the reasons that there can be no excuse for anyone in this world to not know there is a God! You can even look at weeds that we humans do our best to keep clear of our gardens – God even makes them to be so pretty that at times – you can’t tell if they are weeds! Good read!

    1. Thank you! And I agree with you: I cannot understand how anyone can look at nature and still believe there is no God. 🙂

  6. Now you know I just LOVED this as I’m itching to get out and play in the dirt again!
    I always enjoy your poetry but this one has a bit of a “swagger?” to it. Maybe “sass?” I can’t seem to come up with the adequate term (guess that’s why I’m no poet!). Regardless, brought about a smile from the inside out! B Blessed ma’am! 🙂
