"Blossom Children" by Joe DiMino

From deep cloud-wells
Pours forth our quench-
And parting
Leave rainbow high,
Our reach to heaven
Extracting color
We draw
From enchanted sky…
Adding dewdrops of
Fairy wings,
Tints are flirting
Fluttering lashes-
Texture of silky, swirling
Become perennials of infinite dye-

We are blossom children-
Deep roots eternal
Not in soil,
But the maker of fertile-base-
His beds earth and sky,
Of His many petals you and I-
Unfolding our journey of ripeness,
Bearing fruit from bitter to sweet-
As blooms we gather all brightness
In service of gardens,
Bouquets our selfless treat….
