Heart Work

Lovely Lydia
dipped cloth 
in indigo dye,
dressing royalty
in the Kingly color
of the day.
I am wrapped
today in color 
but it is another
hue
scarlet red
covering me
in impossibly 
laundered linens
purchased by the Savior King
who died
descending into darkness,
bursting forth in
a blaze of Color that is Not–
Purest White.

Linking with Emily on this ‘Love’ day
 and Tweetspeak Poetry for their 
February Indigo prompt.

  1. What beautiful imagery you've created, Jody. From red to black, to white–a miraculous transformation indeed. Thank you for the poignant reminder that brings back the wonder–my sins paid for by the blood of Jesus and the sacrifice of his life, my salvation from death guaranteed by his resurrection into dazzling,white-robed glory!

  2. Beautiful imagery of the blood in art and word! I have always wondered the same thing about blood dipped robes becoming white or are sins be cleansed by blood because blood stains…I like how you incorporated the Lent season color into your poem 🙂
