I Looked at a Flower
by Eldor Kaiser
I looked at a flower and saw each part;
I marveled at the way it grows.
Each flower is a lovely work of art,
So dainty, fragile, gracefulness it shows.
Tell me, how did flowers start?
One flower’s a trumpet with a tail,
Another’s like a bell or like a cup.
Some are colored brightly, others pale;
From its seed, the same kind will come up.
Can you a flower’s mysteries unveil?
One flower needs a bee to pollenate,
Another needs a special kind of fly.
The pollen with pistil must integrate,
Or soon the species will fade and die.
Was this by chance or did God create?
Who can see a flower and not be awed?
Look closely and see each perfect part,
And then you’ll feel you must applaud,
I looked closely at that living art,
And when I looked, I saw the face of God.
