Topic: Bloom (11/22/12)

TITLE: Synchronized With Heaven's Choir

Seeds beneath the earth rehearsing now in separate tunes
Are waiting for instructions as to when and where to bloom
By Your breath they will be warmed, by Your love stems break the ground
And in Your perfect timing every seedling will abound

At times there may be barren fields that need Your holy rains
Which bring to life dormant seeds so they may flower again
Beaten stalks lie flattened by storms that pounded down their rows
Weak plants grow without blooming, theyíve forgotten Him who rose

With tender care untiring, starving soil receives enrichment
Sonshine warms the fresh-tilled earth, plants bud with new commitment
From brightly colored petals a sweet fragrance infiltrates
Fruits produced with Spirit names--Christís love now radiates

Each bloom of joy and kindness grows love with self-control
Flowering fields of goodness serve to mend downtrodden souls
Bouquets of peace and patience are perfumed with gentleness
Fruitful soil produces all good things in faithfulness

Some fields shout alleluias while others hum along
Swaying as they learn the words to praise-filled worship songs
And when the world is singing, synchronized with heavenís choir
Each life will know fulfillment as it yields to Godís desires

Beautiful - with a great lesson intermingled with the flow of the words.
I like the idea that each seed is unique and has its own way and time to bloom.

Lovely poem. I especially liked the last few lines and your reference to humming along. Don't lose heart is what it spoke to me.
