Lilies, white

Lilies, white, line the walls,
representing memory  but
commemorating hope, sign
of what is to come. The whiteness
blares trumpets, a symphony
of brass. The horns join
the stones in shouting, singing
a new song, always transcending,
always ascending.

Wonderful poem! I love the Bible verse about how Jesus asks us to "consider the lily and how it grows." Your poems brings up aspects I had not "considered" - the growth of hope and levity. Thanks, Glynn.
