Three Irises: Poem About God’s Love

Dwarf_Crested_Iris__Iris_cristata

Gold, rust, you remind
Me of the Father’s rich love:
So many flowers
All from one single tall stem
Love upon love upon love.

Purple, you remind
Me of the Son, Jesus Christ:
“This is my body
Broken to break sin and death
Love upon love upon love.”

And peach, you remind
Me of the Holy Spirit:
Sent to glorify
The Son, do what we cannot
These colors are amazing.

Three irises stand
Fragrant in the front garden
Father, Son, Spirit
Sing “Holy, Holy, Holy
Love upon love upon love.”
