The Story of Flowers

The flowers displayed in all their glory.
Every colour of the rainbow seen.
Each arrangement tells its own story.
Every leaf, a different shade of green

Their petals spread across the rainbow.
Their buds, the promise of what’s to be.
The wonders of Gods world on show.
The beauty of Gods world to see.

This is just one of over 200 poems I have written. The Poem Index gives a full list of all of the poems you can find on this site. Some poems have been grouped into themes on their own pages: 

Hope and Inspiration – Encouragement and hope in those moments of searching
Spiritual reflection – Forgiveness and quiet inner reflection.
Love and Joy  – The love in our hearts and the joy of living.
Christian Poetry – The Gospels and their stories.
The Natural World – Nature and its seasons, of rivers and raindrops.
Time alone with God – Reflections with God, regardless of what you believe.
Animals and Pets – The blackbird greeting the dawn, the cat sleeping on the bed.
Remembrance and Grief – Of those we have lost. (Some have been read at funerals)
Sadness and despair – Those sad moments that we sometimes have to face
