I clothed thee with embroidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk. Ezekiel 16: 10

The silky fibers of a milkweed pod
Grows radiance outside the skin
Who brushed its fine hair was God
To glow and shine from within!
Poetry by me AJP
