Bloody Charity

April 11, 2023

Rob Jones

Awakened by the wings of a spring breeze

Aroused to see a sacramental view

Approaching an unapproachable scene

Assessing the beautiful and the true,

As a mythic veil reveals a portal,

Alluring the pure in heart with wonder

Affirming we’re more than just mere mortals

Aching for Eden to feed our hunger.

Assigned by the creator to create,

And throng the world with transcendental bliss

Acknowledging to all that God is great

Adoring the one who’ll grant a pure wish

A cross of love, the sacred alchemy

All of us need His bloody charity.
