Is It Ever…

Photo Story, Poetry

Is it ever enough
this filling of my cup

Do I drink that of my lips
or is it of His

I try one
but the other I shun

Is it ever right
to resist and even fight

Oops, I spilled
was it mine or His

I sip and sputter
mixing one with the other

Do I drink of mine
or is it His

Is it ever enough
this filling of my cup

* Blood-red tulips seemingly huddled close in a chilly March breeze last year. Tilting their cups upward, they reach for Him… I remember that I got down and knelt low to freeze this image, some of it clear, some of it blurred. Much like me. Tulip cups of velvety fragrance prove more sturdy and stable en masse, but left alone, the individual blooms topple and eventually sag to the dirt or they just snap off with a gust.

You, yes you. Come closer, just a bit more. Please, do place your tulip cup near mine. Isn’t that better? Yeah, I think so too. And don’t we just look and smell divine all huddled together like this?!
