Rose of Sharon,
Your Beauty bleeds.
Layer upon layer, I prod and seek,
and as my vision
adjusts, I perceive.
Petals open and invite.
I see a delicate strength
wrapped in Glory,
enveloped in Mercy,
perfumed with Majesty,
lit with Love,
and I am lost,
drowning in a rose-scented sea,
drawn like an arrow
to the target of Your Heart.
I must have You.
I must find You,
breathe You in,
swim in Your ocean,
wrap myself in your skin.
I ‘m diving in, Lord –
This is truly breath-taking! (Perhaps I was holding my breath as I, too, dove in.) Brilliant, and exquisitely, excruciatingly beautiful. (Shall I stop, or go on?) God bless you–love, Caddo
How far past brilliant can you go? 🙂 Thank you so much. This one invites me to worship deep…
It definitely gives me more to ponder, direction for the heart perhaps…I shouldn’t think this hard, late at night. But deep worship is always good.
I should NOT be up – need my beauty sleep! Nighty-night! 🙂 *yawn*
God bless you, dear heart–Nighty-night!!
You voice a loving God, melody 🙂
Good! That is the One I seek!
Thank you for helping us dive into Jesus too! God bless you!
Thank you Debbie!
And He catches us…as we open layer upon layer of our hearts to the Rose of Sharon who also calls us the same… I am a Rose of Sharon, the lily of the valleys…Song of Songs 2:1…
Yes! Our value is inestimable, and we find that true worth when we let go and dive in completely…
I cannot stop reading your poems, Melody! This is amazing. I see your talent with worlds.
Very smooth/effortless reading, so many layers with perfect integrity, yet so inspiring.
Wow. I am so honored by your visits today, and so touched by your words of encouragement. Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments! 🙂
Beautiful, Melody! This reminds me of burying my face in a cool, cool blossom.
The rose, yes, the perfect symbol for human and Divine Love. You captured this – the arrow, the target – wonderful!
