Clandestine Lilies

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.

Hebrews 11:1-3

Is my faith like hidden lilies?
Buried deep beneath
trials and sorrow’s
sweet.

Is my faith like hidden lilies?
Lofty stalks of blooms
bowing deeply to
greet.

Dense
twined foliage
laced with colors
of faith, hope, charity;
searching for undying love.

Hope
like petals;
are fragile things
in need of nurturing.
Abiding faith is from above.

P. Wolf; author and poet
