is full of weeds, insects,
showing signs of neglect and the heat.
This life, also, is full of
trials, sin, discouragment and weariness.
I look for ( and need) hope , mercy and grace.
The beauty is there,
Waiting to be found.
If we look for it.
A lone Sonia Rykel rose,
one of my favorites,
with the most heavenly fragrance .
Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me in your paths;
guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
