Easter flower album

by Luci Shaw  
 (From Accompanied by Angels, 2006)

God dug his seed
into dry, dark earth.
After a sprouting up 
in hopeful birth
and healing bloom
and garland grace,
he buried it again
in a darker place.

Twice rudely planted seed,
root, rise in me
and grow your green again.
your fruited tree.

Joy Walters and Elizabeth Reinsborough send these favorite spring flowers.
