Tinker Posted May 12, 2009 Share Posted May 12, 2009 Path to Stillness "Be still and know I am God." Psalms 46:10 Framed by glossy leaves dipped in Merlot, the corolla curves like the flounce at the bottom of a prom gown. And from the sculpted flutters, edged with a brush of crimson, shadows and swells wash from mustard to pale sunshine. A smear of red stains the back of one imperfect petal as if a pricked finger had reached out and stroked its buttery surface. At the hub golden nubs spread open releasing a gentle sweetness in invitation to the stillness I seek. Flutterby Rose (original) "Be still and know I am God." Psalms 46:10 Edged with a brush of crimson, the corolla curves like the flounce at the bottom of a prom gown and from the sculpted flutters, shadows and wells deepen from ripe yellow to subdued ochre. A smear of red, stains the back of one imperfect petal as if a pricked finger had reached out and stroked its soft surface. A faint fresh scent floats gently in seductive invitation and tiny pistils with golden nubs spread open to their center. Framed by glossy green leaves dipped in wine, in this moment, it is my path to stillness. -- Judi Van Gorder Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
