02 Flowers Trees And Plants


Four Flowers...: The Sun arose in Morning Glory, with His Goldenrod wanding Violet to Rose
*
The bees' favorite couplet.. sunup brimming buttercuplet
*
When God greengrows it's rarely in rows... awry the rye rises...unruly the rose
*
How awesome How sublime That out of muck and mud and slime....God
makes lemons God makes limes.
*
The sun arrays the dawn in rose as He arises and rouses the rose
*
April is aproned with apricot blooms.
*
They called the wind lackadaisical
but because she in freedom blows
the world will never...........lack for daisies
*
Dawndrawn, dandelions summoned by the sun... spread gold parasols
*
Little Tree, Little Tree, I wonder where you are
to thank you for the sweet pink fruit you did weave
from distant star.
*
Each night the tree of nut out of naught knits neat nuts
*
The bee Hector needs no lector to read him the sector
where blooms of great nectar pour fragrance in vectors
*
Weeding, whispered the Great Spirit...is plant racism
*
Ivy and violets vy not with the violent.
*
Why is the rose encircled by thorns? That she not be plucked
*
In the predawn violet... as they wake the violets... of the unsung..
birds sing...
*
Bursting blooms of bluebonnet to the sun sing silent sonnets
A beetlebored bamboo flute.. Yonder wind plays upon it
*
Hawaiian breadfruit... shed your Joseph's coat of many colors..
your 1000 panes of stained glass mosaic.. and become 10,000 breadfruit
trees
*
From the shore.. one looks upward
to the sanddune grass..10,000 green brush blades
trying to paint the blue sky jade*
*
Enpine the cone! Enoak acorn! Enpear the seed that inner
sun be freed!
*
Held the dew the buttercup better than the butternut
*
For every tree and wildflower He has willed the power
as He flows through all an effortless willpower
*
Delilah's lilac'd fields Lilliputian the Lord of Love has many lilies
put in
He is one with every Obama, Blair, every Chavez, Castro and Putin.
*
As birds helped Cinderella to dress for the dance,
the peony made her debut because of kind ants
*
The peony sphere has no perfume.. until she opens the petals
of her heart
*
He no longer daisy petals shreds to ask if her love for him has been
shed
*
Into the daisy the sun has spun his gold
and his rays has rolled into the marigold
*

May and Mother Earth has
gone under cover
hiding herself neath fields
of daisy and clover


Impatience always show patience as they weave new blooms from
the sun and cloud looms
*
The meadows are asterisked by asters. Though they
seem randomly sprayed, not a single one has gone astray.
*
Clover lamps with their curved necks hang over the cobbles
of a London sidewalk shedding purple light in their tiny world




God needs no
chain or buckle
to link
the roots
of honeysuckle.
Her herald fragrance
runs ahead
as her seamless
threads
delve in new
beds.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
