Spills and Drips

The fragrant peony spills and drips sweet scents
in wild profusions of petals
surrounded by spiky, green leaves

The Sacred Heart of Jesus spills and drips sweet sentiments
with wild profusions of tenderness
surrounded by His fiery, unbounded love

What a wonder it is to be be filled with spills and drips of sentimentality
during wild profusions of contemplation
surrounded by love in this month of His Sacred Heart


  1. This reflection on the Sacred Heart is as beautiful as the vase peonies.

  2. What a lovely poem and a lovely reminder. Great pictures too. Thank you.

    God bless.

  3. I LOVE peonies!!!!
