O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall show forth thy praise...
Psalm 51: 15

Tulips open O Lord
In due time and place...
They don't say a word
Yet may show thee praise
Simply for us to capture...
A slow bloomer that composes..
Is still writing its first chapter
Inside the flower that closes...
.Poetry by me AJP

Yesterday we had snow in the morning and all of the tulips were closed shut but today all three were opened.
