Magnolia


You are cloaked in ordinary
For much of the year
Nondescript leaves hang from
Crooked branches
Rendering you invisible to
Those who pass by
They have forgotten your name
They have forgotten who you are
They have forgotten to
Notice you

But I notice you
I know your potential
I know, come spring
You will be nothing short of
Resplendent
Blooms as large as my hands
Will adorn you from
Head to toe
With no leaves to
Distract from your beauty
And nothing
To hide who you are

We have much in common
You and I
Spending most of my time
Covered in the ordinary of
Everyday life
I feel invisible sometimes
Forgotten or unnoticed

But there is One who
Sees me
Not just as I am
But also as I will be
He knows my potential
He knows, come Spring
I will be nothing short of
Resplendent
Reflections of His glory
Will adorn me from
Head to toe
With no depravity to
Mar the beauty
And nothing
To hide who I am

Come quickly, Sweet Spring
Come quickly
