IMPATIENCE, NOT JUST A FLOWER

Our bush finally blooms and flowers!

Full blossoms last near a week!

Blooms beautifully for a month!

Ever it has reached its peak.

.

.

My impatience seems far more patient!

Flowers the year round!

Shooting up through a sturdy bush,

Just smiling through its frown!

.

.

As impatience shows its fervency,

Like, blooming the year round,

Should we not be impatient

To, in His Grace abound?

.

.

His persistent, firm, voice reminding,

Another who needs His Grace,

This one who needed Salvation!

Point out the better place!

.

.

As impatience does remind us,

Doing its natural thing,

As God planted us in His Grace,

Can we through trials sing?

.

.

Or will we leave the witnessing to

Flowers that we attend?

That know not any better than,

His goodness to extend?

.

.

The fragrance of the roses,

Gardenias purest white!

Snap dragons so colorful,

Impatience!  There is a sight!

.

.

Five petals, all they acknowledge,

Their similarity

Seem a bit monotonous!

In their duplicity or is it only me?

.

.

But recognize now tenacity

In their flowering stance,

Cold weather does not slow them down!

They year round dance!

.

.

May we not, too, as Christians,

Display a happy face?

Through wintry tribulation,

Supported by God’s Grace!

.
