Poetry Invitation # 34 :: Honouring the Gift of Earth

Tuesday, April 28, 2009
Every so often, Abbey of the Arts hosts a poetry invitation. She posts a picture and a theme and invites anyone to respond with poems, reflections, prose. Check the icon for more info. Read my submission below.

~ Note: I've chosen a picture of my own, rather than use the picture Christine provided in her 34th poetry invitation. ~



Fingerprints
Magnolia ~
She whispers in her silence,
beckons me, closer.
And I, in my darkness,
feel her light
wrap its arms around me.
Looking deep into her heart
I see a reflection
of deep wisdom.
Magnolia ~
She whispers in her silence,
I am but a fingerprint of God.
As are you.

I echo the words shared here -- beautiful, wondrous, majestic. Thank you!

Dear Tinkerbell--
This photo is exquisite!
And I really enjoyed the imagery of being a fingerprint of God--no two alike, but all from the same hand. NICE!!
