Poem Flowers Faith

by Helena Stuart
(Portadown County Armagh Ireland)


By a backward lane
On a road less travelled
Near a guttery gap
I saw your radiant beauty.

Only perchance did I happen your way
Stepping off the main road to nowhere important
And there you were
Your radiant beauty pointing heavenward.

You seek not admiration
Or the snap of shutter’s eye
Whether I see you or not
You speak of God's presence in the world

Oh how I have looked to find you in loftier places
Where theologians have taken you apart
and reassembled you in versions new
But here in this little backward lane
You reveal yourself to me in utter simplicity.

From Katherine Owen:

Thank you so much to Helena for a poem which captures that powerful moment when we see God through the natural world.

Bible poem flower

by Jeffrey Robert Anderson
(Kennewick, WA, USA)

Includes bible quotes


O sweet flower of mine; what might I see in you? Would my love and kindness drop upon the pretty thing glowing in the rising Son? My O my how He fills my mind with lovely thoughts all the day long in regard to you! Ever precious you are as every drop of Holy Blood covering you with mercies new every morning was well spent!

O my thoughts, O my thoughts over you! What are they raining constantly from my heart upon the tender flower? I see virtue and compassion that shakes the world in kindnesses shown to others round you; your soft tongue breaks bones! As the light breaks forth as the dawn out of the night, the power of God causes you to rise and shine! The children of men round you bow to the King in looking on your countenance bright.

I will spend my thoughts on you in speedy prayers into the Heavens! O LORD guard her and protect her; none found touching the beautiful work of Your Hands. Ah a glowing flower! Corrupted ones coming near continually are found beaten to the earth as Your jealous love over her is a consuming fire in justice recompensing Your enemies striving to take the shining beauty of only one flower!

Whom upon Your Earth can fight with You in arrogant pride saying I will overtake the Just One? What of Your anger kindled but a little? Whom can stand before You protecting the beautiful flower? What can the clay say to the potter? O I will do this or that and He sees me not! O wicked man desiring only merchandise; The LORD determine your lot and destiny!

A flower in my mind always glowing provokes me to be a better man making me to shine. May Heavens light emanate always from me making her precious heart, the flower of her love to bloom! In my heart and mind there is found a scrolled up letter, a love-letter for only her, all my sweet thoughts devising good continually fall upon the fragile petals watering. I will sow the thoughts, you deliver them Mighty Mail Man watering the fragile flower giving the increase.

(Song of Solomon 8:6) Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.

(Song of Solomon 8:7) Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.

(Isaiah 60:1) Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.

(Isaiah 60:2) For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

(Isaiah 60:3) And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

(Ephesians 2:8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

(Ephesians 2:9) Not of works, lest any man should boast.

(Ephesians 2:10) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

(Jeremiah 18:1) The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

(Jeremiah 18:2) Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.

(Jeremiah 18:3) Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.

(Jeremiah 18:4) And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

(Jeremiah 18:5) Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

(Jeremiah 18:6) O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

(Jeremiah 18:7) At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it;

(Jeremiah 18:8) If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.

(Jeremiah 18:9) And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it;

(Jeremiah 18:10) If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.

(Jeremiah 18:11) Now therefore go to, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you: return ye now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.

(Jeremiah 18:12) And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.

(Jeremiah 18:13) Therefore thus saith the LORD; Ask ye now among the heathen, who hath heard such things: the virgin of Israel hath done a very horrible thing.

(Jeremiah 18:14) Will a man leave the snow of Lebanon which cometh from the rock of the field? or shall the cold flowing waters that come from another place be forsaken?

(Jeremiah 18:15) Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;

(Jeremiah 18:16) To make their land desolate, and a perpetual hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished, and wag his head.

(Jeremiah 18:17) I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will shew them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity.

(Jeremiah 18:18) Then said they, Come, and let us devise devices against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.

(Jeremiah 18:19) Give heed to me, O LORD, and hearken to the voice of them that contend with me.

(Jeremiah 18:20) Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a pit for my soul. Remember that I stood before thee to speak good for them, and to turn away thy wrath from them.

(Jeremiah 18:21) Therefore deliver up their children to the famine, and pour out their blood by the force of the sword; and let their wives be bereaved of their children, and be widows; and let their men be put to death; let their young men be slain by the sword in battle.

(Jeremiah 18:22) Let a cry be heard from their houses, when thou shalt bring a troop suddenly upon them: for they have digged a pit to take me, and hid snares for my feet.

(Jeremiah 18:23) Yet, LORD, thou knowest all their counsel against me to slay me: forgive not their iniquity, neither blot out their sin from thy sight, but let them be overthrown before thee; deal thus with them in the time of thine anger.

"One thing that struck me was the stripping of ego in the work. Most of us have a comfy ego façade, but weakness and disease tore Katherine’s away. The poems in Be Loved Beloved come from the heart."
