i smell the fragrance of Godís love
i can taste the scriptures as they slip into my soul
i am humbled as I learn their meaning
tasting Godís love is amazingly is good for our digestion system

the scent becomes stronger with each day
my walk with God grows with the reading of His word
the taste becomes sweeter as He lives within me
tasting Godís love makes my walk with God stronger each day

walking with God isnít always easy
there will always be trials to overcome
sometimes with trials we find the need to walk away from Him
but in the end, we find the need to taste Godís love once again

our pain and sorrow is hard to overcome
the taste of sin and our faith is tested during this time
the taste of freedom and forgiveness becomes desired
Godís love is desperately needed to satisfy the taste of forgiveness

Devouring His word is the satisfaction our soul needs to experience the taste of His love!

Outside of capitalizing each word at the beginning of each line (but I am not sure, I am correct about that)....this was deliciously worded. My mouth watered as I read this phrase:Godís love is desperately needed to satisfy the taste of forgiveness. Refreshingly deep but with the elegance of simplicity. Good Job!

This has such a beautiful message. At times it is a little distracting- you used an extra is in the first stanza, if you meant to have two then you should have used a semi-colon or comma to let the reader know you were continuing the thought. The lack of capitalization to me seemed like a statement. You were only capitalizing God until that last sentence. I could sense that you felt little, unimportant next to our mighty Lord. The passion and underlying message is very beautiful and creative.

What a hunger for God and His Word! The verbs point to this in most every line. Polish this up and it will really shine.:) [Time doesn't allow for much editing until after the fact here.]

You have a nice grasp of writing skills and it appears you have your own style of free verse. Keep writing and rewriting.

Love especially your last phrase: Devouring His word is the satisfaction our soul needs to experience the taste of His love.

I like the free-sytle of this poem. That's something I don't do well. Great last line too.
