Full of passion and desire
…….only to betray.
He took the kiss with fervor,
Stealing breath from the accused
to be used as ultimate declaration of hypocrisy.
Stolen breath exhaled as accusal
“It is he…seize him,
Breathe of life morphs into death of soul!
River of Eternity
Red, thick, warm, rolling down drip by drip
Emptied out and spilled for nil it seems.
What a waste of grace?
Temporary illusion poured out on now holy ground,
becomes a river that winds its way through all eternity.
Strength like a tsunami carrying all it touches
touching all it carries.
Flowing its way through history, people, evil as well as good
Begun at first glimmer of creation and continuing without a single pause
or to personal death.
……whichever comes first!
Animation of life unseen
Stirring in us inebriation misunderstood.
Now washed in red and become white,
Strengthened, sanctified, forever
through no fault of my own.
River of salvation, Amen!
In the midst of crushing disappointment, screaming terror!
Which is it?
Peace from a ghost?
Not possible in the senses!
Pierced hands, feet, bloodless?
Not a corpse.
Invited touch is hungry!
Minds now cracked open, see.
Body real, needs the same as ours.
Travel vehicle for life on earth.
Our noble incarnation reiterated by His tangible return!
