in indigo dye,
in the Kingly color
of the day.
I am wrapped
today in color
purchased by the Savior King
descending into darkness,
bursting forth in
a blaze of Color That is Not–

So true… both art, Word….
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!
“Purchased by our Savior” … a wonderful Valentines thought for all of us.
i love this line: impossibly laundered linens… yes. he does the impossible. thank you jody. and that picture is beautiful!
Karin–'the blood showers down'–I never thought it that way.
'Scarlet rain.' your words (and pictures) are always so beautiful. Thank you, friend.
Thank you, Kel. I'm no artist–God just gave me that picture, I had some paint and paper and well….you know how that goes. 🙂
Thank you for stopping by and your kind words.
“A love for all.” I never thought of that……….
Robbie–I appreciate you stopping by. I enjoyed your poems over at Tweetspeak.
love,love, love this…
the blood showers down
scarlet rain that transforms and purifies
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 🙂
I love the words that remind me I am washed in the blood. Great thoughts on this day honoring LOVE.
A love for all. Happy Valentine's Day.
This is very good! Thank you for sharing. . .
