I rest in Thee
for Marie Clay on her 91st bloom
I rest in thee
amongst flowers and the tree
a place to be still
to contemplate the colorful truth of
life’s many thrills and ills
hidden among nature’s delightful best.
I sit at peace because You have
nursed each seasonal bloom.
I catch my breath, breathe in deep the
presence of your abiding love
and declare my thanks and praise that
I am one of your chosen best!
