Resuscitation - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

I commiserate with empathetic attitude
With platitudes of yesterday
Accented with caomparison and forgiveness
That i have sprinkled along the way
For in this path called My Life
A single flower i have been
Once blaming all of the weeds of this world
For the pestulence of sin
I have all but completely wilted
From the suns sizzling rays-burned
But somehow i was salvaged and to the sod returned
New chances i've been given
By the wonders of the Universes higher power
A most enlightening and forgiving Spirit
Now back to the sod-A full blooming flower

    I must admit that I enjoyed your poem on read one, but wondered at the text relationship to your title. On the second read I did grasp the peak and trough, and peak - in grand rewarding fashion. The seeds of goodness sown, so long unrecognized, may have been thought barren, the sod, for all intents fallow. I should think that the good, and your commiserative empathy, by virtue of some undefined spirituality, brought vigor and life renewed in splendid displays. A very fine poem indeed! ! !
