So I May Once More Blossom, Like The Rose to Aviannovice. (Deb Hirt)
A Blossoming Rose
I rise on yet another emerging dawn,
And place my ails and virtues at Your feet.
As such I am now wholly Thine.
I awake with no ecstasy of feeling,
Only a steadfast and abiding Faith.
Let my weakness be transformed into fortitude;
My frailty aligned to the synergy of the sun.
I search for meaning; to transform this veil of shadows,
Into the wondrous Light of Love.
Abide in me, my Beloved.
Nurturing the seeds of my longing,
I shall once more blossom, like the rose.
Do caress and replenish my buds,
So that I shine, like moonbeams,
Gleaming and pulsing with new life.
How I long to flourish,
Drinking Your fountain of living water,
To captivate the magnificence of the Soul!
I yearn for Happiness,
Yet in my aloneness and desolation,
You seem an ever-elusive shadow.
I reach out and summon Your brilliance,
But like an ephemeral flame, You fade away.
Come into my Heart, O vast and sacred Canopy,
Take away this ‘scorching’ sun of darkness;
Flood my Soul with Your Ocean of Peace,
Re-awakening my long forgotten Delight,
To lose myself in Joy.
