Rose of Sharon, one of the beautiful names that the Bible uses to describe the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for this lovely poem you have written in tribute to the Lord.

This is a very beautifully written poem of faith. Beautiful presentation background colour and font. Lovely photo to compliment your words as well. Amazing how sometimes poems just pop in your mind like magic and you have to write it down. That happens to me too. Nicely done.

    Thank you for your encouraging review. It's very special when others see things the same way without too many words. That, to me, is true spiritual communication!

This poem, Rose of Sharon, uses the hibiscus syriacus, representation of marriage, as the symbol of God's relationship to us and the protection we can expect.

    Thank you for your review. I never knew that about the flower being a representation of marriage. I think it's a lovely symbol. Thank you for bringing this out.

Very nice indeed nicely done and easy to relate to, reading this reminded me of fighting for what I believe in,and the things I can not change. For me it is what it is.

    Thank you for your review and about fighting for your convictions in a world that is increasingly turning away from Truth. We cannot be passive when things we value and depend on are being assaulted.

This is a lovely poem and I find it exciting that it came to you full blown. I've had that happen to me a couple of times in my life and it's absolutely amazing. It's a gift. My grandmother had a green thumb and she grew so many varieties of flowers and flowering shrubs. One was the Rose of Sharon. Whenever I see the bush in bloom I think of her.

    Thank you for such a beautiful application of the tenets of the poem. It's very special that flowers can evoke beautiful memories. It was unusual for me to receive the complete poem with little effort on my part. I don't take credit for it.

Oh yes indeed, poetry is the music of the soul, and it expresses what the thought cannot. The words are magically formed by the heart, mind, soul all working together to spread the gift of words, with which the Lord spoke creation into existence, absolute pleasure to read, well done, blessings Roy

Many times when I get an inspiration for a poem, the poem appears as a rough draft, and I have to polish it up a bit. Many times I have to put it aside for a week or two, and then look at it with fresh eyes. I think you should do that here and take care of the near rhymes and touch up the meter. Great subject matter.

    Thank you for your encouraging review and counsel. Perhaps I published this before it was fully formed, as you shared. I'll take your advice and give it some time.

This is a very beautiful spiritual poem you have penned. I can always tell when the Holy Spirit takes over in my writing too. You used lovely words and beautiful imagery from the lovely picture you chose. Thank you for sharing this with us! May God bless you! Teri

    Thank you so much for your inspiring review. I love it when someone who is clearly living in the spirit shares a reaction as you have. It's like a real link in the spirit that people who don't know the Lord can never relate to.
