Water Lily Grace
Refusing to enter another day’s jangle
I chose instead a solitary garden stroll.
Cool breezes caressed my cheek as I wandered
Led by a bevy of fluttering dragonflies.
There before me spread a luminous pool
Winking a welcome of tossed sunbeams.
A cinnamon skipper fluttered nearby
Lured by delicate scents of sweet nectar.
Mounted on stalks of varied hues
Water lilies spread their petals heavenward.
Each echoed glories of the day now proclaimed
In rainbow palates of vibrant beauty.
Stunned by their loveliness I sunk to my knees
Resting in the embrace of wonder.
Lulled by the rhythm of wings I found myself
Renewed once again in my Creator’s garden.
