Flowering fragrances

August 19, 2010
By Stephanie Bethke-DeJaeghere

Today the world seemed cruel, but evening hours; was filled with perfume from forgotten flowers. I saw again familiar filigree of moonlight through my lacy Lilac tree; I heard the robins stirring in their nest; and saw the path that fairy feet had pressed; reflected stars were in my garden pool; on my warm face the breeze was kind and cool. The silence seemed to speak, my head was bowed, then ramblers that had grown in to a cloud lifted my eyes, that tear-washed, now could see the beauty that today was lost to me. Dear God, who is so near to flowers, and birds, be nearer still, as I shall search for words to thank Thee for the blessings night revealed, which through the day discouragement concealed.
