A Flower Grew (Poem for Rachel) (by James Watkins)


In deepest realms of glory,

a flower grew and danced

in morning bright-

and dreamed a dream

of golden choices,

of clouds,

and evening flight-


It sang a song with setting sun

that whispered with the wind-

and bloomed in heavens guardian light-

complete and warm within-


To run and play by stardust stream,

beyond the silent dawning,

and bless anew angelic hosts,

above celestial awning.


In father’s heart awoke a flame

aware at its beginning-

the smallest seed of love renewed,

prepared for time unending.


This heavy blow against the realm

of cruelty and darkness,

was sparked by hope

against the storm,

to flourish in its softness.


To topple kings and steadfast things

amazed at hidden wisdom-

that struck the plan, that

moved the hand,

that broke the holy prison.


Revealed in grace and wonder,

to live and dance and sing,

a perfect image of the light,

proceeding from the king.


Empowered by his mercy,

the father spoke the name-

and Rachel came into the earth,

to flower once again.
