Was he a Saint or just Holy
He was sitting in a chair
Dressed in black
A woman knelt before him
I stood in wonder

Was he a Saint or just Holy?
Sitting in a chair
Dressed in black
As the woman knelt before him
I stood in wonder

Was he a Saint or just Holy?
As he sat in the chair
All dressed in black
The woman knelt before him
I stood in wonder

Now it is interesting how my reaction to this contrasts with Deb. I think maybe it is because I use a lot of repetition for effect in my own poems. To me the three same verses said; "I wondered why this man in black was there," cynically, "was he holy?" It seemed a comment on a particular type of person; the kind who appears religious but you are just never sure where they are coming from. It would be so interesting to know why you wrote this and where the idea came from. love jacky

Sorry Norma, but you've lost me on this one I'm afraid. I may be missing something that someone else is able to recognise straight away, so apologies if that's the case. With something as abstract as this, it might have been good to include some sort of preface to let the reader know where you were coming from. It wasn't just the meaning that lost me, but also the repetition. I'd really love to know what you intended. With love, Deb
