Daffodils

google images
In the midst of a snowstorm 
I remember the long forgotten daffodil bulbs 
planted last fall,
just waiting to burst forth into bloom 
at the first touch of the warmth of spring, 
and I smile. 

Like the daffodil, 
we are all waiting to burst forth
 into new life
 at the gentlest touch 
of our beloved Creator's hand.

Stretch out Your hand, O Lord! 
Bring us to new life in You! 
Re-create our souls to bring glory to You alone!

    1. Cynthia, this is high praise coming from you! You're the most talented poet I know, especially when it comes to poems about God's hand working in nature. Thank you so much!
