Camellias – A Poem by Kristen Sykes

CAMELLIAS

 

Camellias bloom in winter
Lush beauty out of season
With deeply layered petals,
Colors rich and
Densely dyed, blossoms
Prolific fully fill the
Bounteous bush, drawing
Eye to linger the while,
Implanting subtle hope
Within discerning spirits
Of beauty built from ashes;
Sprung from winter’s grasp,
Sign of unwasted suffering
And some day th’advent of spring;
Particularly dear to the
Husbandman, as He Himself
Burst forth from the coldness
Of men of sinful heart
And shone alone in a season
When none other bloomed.
                               Selah
