Black hat, grey waistcoat,
Pristine bib of white in place –
Formal banquet wear
Nymph of the desert, Queen of the Nile,
Rain dresses tresses in high-fashion style;
Jewel-toned highlights, headdress affair,
You carry yourself regally – all stop and stare.
Crusted with gem-tones and sparkling with rings,
Representation of haute couture kings;
Succulent savvy, African grace –
Shapely and sparkly, with rubies in place.
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!
