White Flower

To you who give your love to Him unseen, unknown His love abounds
Drifting from your locks, hues of ruby, golden wheat and reddish browns
Adulation, knees red from our supplication drift up to God, Our Lord
To smite the enemies of His devoted with the Authority of His Sword
Angels with coronets of Sacred Blue Lily and the Narcissus Paperwhite
Shelter molded with wings of spun gold and breastplates take sunset flight
Foreboding masses lean upon His shoulders, cherished are we in His sight
Tenderness and sensitivities break all mortal boundaries, His Spirit near
Beloved children stirring contemplations in waking hours need not fear
Blowing of ancient oaks, listen to archaic psalms and know that He is here

Written by Joni Caggiano 03/19/20

I dedicate this poem to all my friends on WordPress and Twitter, whom I love and cherish. I have friends all over the world, and I thank God for every one of you. Your love, support, and kindness is a gift I do not take for granted. Each of you humbles me. I am praying for all those who are sick or frightened to get better and to find solace.
