The Art of a Created Heart



Old, dead dried out calla lily leaf –
Shouldn’t you just be tossed on refuse heap?
No, for papery texture of leafy part
Lends itself to pleasure of created art.
Leafy part, when scanned digitally,
Transforms into an artistic sort of tree.

Lord, pleasure yourself, breathe me anew,
Make my every effort a reflection of you.
Transform my papery wrinkled texture to art;
Breathe new life into my dead dried out heart.
I’ll no more be like old calla lily leaf
If you enhance the design of my God-belief.

  1. You are amazing. How do you think of these things? This is just lovely. What a gorgeous tree it turns out to be! Wouldn't it be neat as part of the illustrations in a children's book? Have you ever thought of doing one? With your art and words, it would be fabulous!


I would rejoice greatly to receive a comment from you, thanks.
