Praise Like a Psalm

The other morning, I read Psalm 148 at the beginning of my prayer time. As I began to pray, this poem of praise was inspired.

Praise the Lord!

Praise Him, red dirt road
iris beginning to bloom
Praise Him, purple bearded
iris with buds galore
Praise Him, bleeding hearts
for your beauty
Praise Him, lovely lavender
with scent so soothing
Praise the Lord, lilac blooms
your aroma wafting on the breeze
Praise Him, giant dogwood tree
filling the sky with pink blossoms
Praise Him, ancient rose bushes
lining the road with your elegance

Praise the Lord, bees and hummingbirds
for life-sustaining nectar
Praise Him, O butterfly
you have a second life

Praise Him, seedum succulents
carpeting the ground
Praise Him, bright azalea
with blooms never failing
Praise Him, lantana for
color-changing beauty
Praise Him, maple tree
praise Him, plum
Praise Him, mighty fir
still standing in the storm

Praise the Lord!
