Beautiful! Descriptive!

Wow! What a unique take! The talent to write poetry escapes me, but I can certainly comment on the theme: Words certainly have power to change the world, but words stirred up in dust, surely one or two, had the power to save a woman and witness to many generations. Now, that's the power of the pen. This was a mighty message!

Wow! I REALLY, REALLY enjoyed reading this! I LOVED it!
A very deep and meaningful piece. I truly enjoyed this, as I write a lot of poetry.

God bless

My favorite lines, since I recognize the "hidden" meaning (not just dust on the ground, but Adam's offspring):
"His words still stir the dust
and hearts of lust
return to love." Powerful!

This I liked! I liked a lot! I considered this story line myself. I'm glad I left it alone. I could not have communicated nearly as well as this. very nice job. God bless.
"They all slinked away to their personal depravities.." what an amazing word picture? This is another excellent poem, and I have recommended your work to those I know will be interested in the quality of your poetry.
I did wonder if the title could be shortened to "The stirring of dust"-I do like brief titles- just a thought?
