The Flower Family

I love the garden, the smell of wet sod filled of life, the white picket fence and the gate open wide to the color inside.

The Flower Family

The Flower Family

Deep in the Blue-Eyed-Grass
Young Sweat Pea and Black-Eyed-Susan
Play in the Dutchman’s Breaches.
His sister, in Queens-Annes-Lace and Foxgloves
Picks Monkey Flowers and Blue-Bells,
While their mother, a Quaker-Lady
Makes Butter-an-Eggs for breakfast
In her Lady-Slippers
Sending her Pink Maids
For Milkweed and Mayapples
Blowing Kisses and Forget-Me-Nots,
Like Shootingstars and Yellow-Rockets
To her little Spiderflowers
In their Bluebonnets
Hoping they will Sticktight to her Blazingstars
While she waits in Bluecurls with Inpatiens
For her Spiderflowers
To come home for Breakfast
With Arrowheads and Wintercrest
Putting her Fairy-Candles in the window
And making a Bouncing-Bet with the Red Maid
That her little Meadow-Beauties
Will be pleased as Inkweeds
With their Partridge-and –Peas breakfast.

Queen of Angels Eternal Flower,
Provides you the colourful shower.
Showing the flowers now here to play,
As she silently basks in love today.

Taking over completely pulling the vibe,
Showing the truth within the Creators' Scribe.
As she saw the pain that came within heart,
She killed the lips of the World Apart.

Breaking the shackles and proving it true,
The Flowers of the Angels in tranquil hue.
As she vanquished the demon with two edged sword,
Taking over everything with armourous word.

As the anthem plays on within the Light,
I transform into an Eagle of greater height.
Coming back forever with love in prayer,
Showing the truth behind all with tender care.

As the Universe now sees the Valley of Flowers,
Bringing home the family after pained showers.
Knowing the enemy is now vanquished within,
With the truth of life stemming from Wage of SIN.

As they all now feel it I walk home again,
Sending all darkness back into memory lane.
Where no other can ever thwart dreams of Love,
Breaking the Shackle of Darkness from Above.
