Fashion Show

Rosy capes of scented dew

Cling to apple trees;

Classic stripy pollen crews

Buzz on scented breeze

Petals draped as haute couture

Fancy every stem;

God-prints marked in fashion sure

Strut to runway’s end

There is a splendour in nature that rivals the best that Paris and Milan have to offer.  Jesus Himself compared lilies to dazzlingly dressed monarchs: “See how the lilies of the field grow.  They do not labour or spin.  Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed as one of these.”  Matthew 6:28 NIV  Open your eyes to the ‘fashion show’ all around you today – you have a front-row seat!

  1. Our Mummy wanted us to say thank you to you for your lovely posts and let you know that you inspired her to write poetry to express her sadness about animals in rescues.

    The poems she has written will be included at the end of the book she is writing about animal rescues which will be published soon. Whee just thought you should know how inspiring you are!

    Nibbles, Nutty, Bingo & Buddy

      Cool! Tell Mummy I just got the proofs and galley for MY first book, coming out soon – so I know how exciting the process is! Tell her poetry is food for the soul – much nicer than nibbling stuff that just goes right through you – well, she’ll know what I mean! 🙂
