 blossom |ˈbläsəm|
  • mature or develop in a promising or healthy way
  •  seem to grow or open like a flower 

Weathered thru winter, God's handiwork springs forth.  Foliage shoots up from bulb long planted. 

Greater promised, closed bud transforms.  Petals explode--layers of colour.  Beauty encompasses.

In this fallen world, experiencing sharp pain--hurt, cut through the core, we blossom.

Colours, character emerge.  Shades deepen as edges soften and furl.


Time tolls.  New generations bloom.

Body withers.  Beauty morphs.  Til, long last, eternity in blossom.
