Vein of Life


Vein of Life


Beauty bathes the day

with a freshness

that sparkles

Reminding me of better

days ahead

Days gilded with gold


with leaves that whither not

and never-fading Light

Each tree offers its fruit


and without end

A river flows and passes through

as Vein of Life

in a Royal City of Love

casting a mist of healing droplets

that glisten as diamonds

on lacy edge of bridal veil

while the King carries her

over the threshold.

  1. Oh Wendy, this is indeed beauty and beautiful! Thank you for sharing not only it, but your desire to focus on beauty and then the poem coming to you. What an answer and what a blessing! I am thinking about the Light that never fades now! God bless you and all the beauty He shows you!

    1. Thanks, Debbie! I truly felt a nudge to get my focus back onto beauty. As always, it was a gentle nudge…
      God is love! His gentleness is always very evident in you and your poetry.

    1. Thank you, Caddo, this one seemed, almost, to write itself in response to my decision to refocus on beauty!
      I don’t know how you manage to write so well everyday? You inspire me!

    1. I agree with you, Melody. And focusing on “whatsoever is lovely” certainly helps us to be strengthened so we can be part of the solution. It sure beats being part of the problem…

    1. Thank you, Gracie! I have always enjoyed writing poems; but, it wasn’t until I started following the Lord that I really got into it. His gift inspires me like nobody else!
