I wonder if when you posted this it didn’t format correctly? For taking it all in one gulp, for me, detracted a bit. It would have been easier to read, absorb and digest broken up into stanzas. But that aside...what a lovely poem, about a lovely tree reflecting and reminding of the loveliness of Jesus! Love the message too, that we should try and reflect the beauty of Jesus, just as so much of His creation does. Makes you think if God gave us such beauty here, (as the frangipani tree and others)
and yet says we cannot even imagine the beauty in Heaven…wow. Enjoyed the lovely vision this brought to my mind!

I really enjoyed your poetry. I am not one who often enjoys the genre, but your entry was wonderful.

"Stop to finger waxy petals
His creative hand did make?"

- my favorite line!

Thank you for sharing.

This was so interesting that you could take an entire piece about a flower, keep it interesting and provide a great message too!

God bless~
