Faith Is A Garland Of Flowers
Faith is a flower newly unlocked
by Mark Heathcote
Strung they can also make a garland.
Whose fragrance travels the world?
Whose beauty coverts the globe ongoing…
Iridescent as an opal - newly moulded.
It is as if a cherished rose must be
Plucked wet, externally blooded:
And, not so delicately hand picked
So as this lovers vine can expand…
Love, mustn't be guarded like a temple.
Else the fruit of love won't ripen!
The seed won't pip or draw in water
Pure at the core of, it's thirsting soul.
And roots will wither at their source
Then-on! Weeping stems, flowers shall fall.
