Queen of Sheba

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.

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!
