A Natural Girl (Heavenly Gift) - Poem by Leslie Alexis

Like the sun in the moon’s path
you eclipse all things earthly
To show your light, beautiful,
In the dark of night; you make
Beautiful that which was
Hidden in darkness. You make
In your time brief, flowers to
Fuel life, and bees to make,
Honey - you are like the gems
From Africa: the diamond
Before it is cut. From dirt
You were made, your color is
Like finely polished brass, or
Cedar polished with oils from
The temple - heavenly gift -
That Solomon built to God.
For you are a gift, to God
By God, shared with man.

    once again I'm floored by your words.
    flowers to fuel life quite commanding.
    you have a tendency to take your audience with you :)
    beautifully written
