dVerse — OLN 327 — Rosemary’s Gift

rosemary blossoms 1 cropped 112422

Velvet rosemary blooms,
Each branch tip clustered with
Silent choirs of profound.
Secrets will be revealed;
Each fragrant unfold brings
Lavender mysteries.

Opening inside, where
Fresh pollen kernels flush
Yearn to pulse forth with life.
Oh, receptive vessels
Understand their calling;
Receive their humble gift.

Will you appreciate
Impromptu miracles?
Sentient messages
Delivered fresh with love?
Oh, gentle reminder:
Mother always knows best.

 

The rosemary bush I watched all summer outside did not bloom. I bought her in about a month ago. In the past couple of weeks, I’ve watched buds forming on her. This morning I see some buds are blossoming. Best Thanksgiving gift ever, from our Mysterious Mother.

Spirit’s Vessel, a poetry form created by Christina R Jussaume on April 7, 2008, consists of three stanzas of six lines each of six syllables each. These stanzas must start with the letters VESSEL OF YOUR last word is 6 letters and your choice. The poem must be uplifting in content and spiritual in nature. It may be with or without rhyme. Rhyme is a plus. It should be left justified.

Grace is today’s host for dVerse’ Open Link Night.

    In slowing down I am able to notice the gifts of the natural world around me. It sounds like you were very present to what rosemary could offer you based on your word choice here.
