Before Blooming

Before the bloom there must be 

gentle care, a tending to ensure 

the heart imbibes nutrients 

for strength and growth.

There must be life-giving light,

the rays from sun to filter through

and provide what is necessary

to thrive.  The roots need room

to push through and find home

deep within the soil, far enough

to reach the water that soaks

down, down into the deepest

part under ground.  Before 

blossoming the sky must shower 

and cover the plant in droplets, 

the life-blood that moves 

through leaf, petal, stem,

root.  A human heart is very

much the same, needing 

Living Water, 

The Light, 

The Spirit 

so that we may be rooted, 

strengthened, and blessed 

to bloom as God intended.
