Spiralling petals!

Updated on April 25, 2015

Ring-a-round petals,

spiralling sideways,

one at a time,

release you

each other

at the periphery,

holding fast

at the bottom,

to blossom

into a pretty flower;

A family

that holds

the root-bond

amid peripheral differences

huddles

under one roof of love;

God's hands

are evident

in every creation!

      A lovely poem. God created beautiful flowers and also lovely families. It's so important to stay together so that each is like a petal and makes part of the whole.
