Dear Lord, look at that sunflower
with ten good flowers, eight old ones,
and some already picked.
The tomato plant has burst
from its allotted space
into the neighboring flowers.
The zinnias are five feet tall!
Whoever heard of such a thing?
Weeds are completely out of control.
Is it worth it to restore order
this late in August?
The purple loosestrife is coming into bloom.
Stalks with tiny buds are waiting for their day.
Thank you, Lord, for your rich gifts to us. Aamen.
Song of Solomon 2:12
The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtle dove is heard in our land..
