First Clematis
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michelle Angelini



first clematis



lonely clematis


first one to arrive


grace this unadorned stone wall


before long other blossoms will flourish


craft a blush carpet



along this tall divider


awakened from winterís


slow sleep opened lilac blooms


brighten fertile vines


in summerís mirthful rotation



invite into your centerís heart


honey bees and hummingbirds


to feed, to spread your beauty


companionless clematis you live


today and die tomorrow



while you breathe the Lord


loves your provisions


when you expire He will gather


all your companions into His arms


as He does with each cherished creation




Note: I wrote this poem after I was inspired by a photo Nan Forehand included in her Calendar. I cannot post it with the poem, since it is not my photo,†but those of you who received her Calendar for 8/2/09 know which photo it is. Thank you Nan, for the beautiful inspiration.

About the Poet
Michelle Angelini, aka Chelle, has been writing poetry for over 40 years. She has been published in many Southern California chapbooks and calendars. I am retired and dealing with my health issues. My Saviour, Jesus is always with me. God holds me within His wings. I am working slowly on a second book poetry and possibly my photography. And, I'm over 65 now and still loving it, even though my social life is not what it once was because of the painful fibromyalgia. It's quite frustrating, but I know Jesus still has "work" for me to do to show how much He blesses me.
