Illuminated from Within
Backlit yellow bloom
the awakening garden cheers.
Her glory not achieved
from her own need to please
but by the One who created her
to turn invisible rays
into stunning beauty.

Like her, I effortlessly reflect
the glory of my Creator
when the Spirit is invited
to illuminate from within.

marieDee, thanks so much for your contribution to this week's Poetry Party! I love the way you develop the image of illumination originating in another source, one unearned. Blessings to you, Christine
