Free form verse is not easy, but you are making it looking easy-peasy with this one! Incredibely expressive and beautiful expression of the Passion of Christ; such rich visualisations. A tiny bit of editing at the start would 'hook' the reader in more quickly, but otherwise - wow! God bless.
O.K. I'll admit it. I usually skip all the poetry (sorry), but the title got me, I read it and it was absolutely beautiful. Inspired me to worship. Thank you.
This imagery is stunningly beautiful! Fabulous job!!!
Written straight from the heart. Wonderful job!
Wow. How do you do it? Excellently written poem.
What a wonderful piece of poetry. This is packed with so much - I'm going back to re-read. Excellent.
Blessings, Lynda
'Worship Poetry' what a gift to be able to write. Awesome.
You're quite an artist yourself! This is beautiful. I especially like the analogy of the crushed grape and the river of crimson.
Wow! Very powerful work here! Great job!
Very pretty. Good job.
I agree with Ali that the first few lines were a little confusing to me and could be better if edited, but the poem turned out to be very beautiful. I loved the line about crushing the perfect fruit. Such a strong image. Terrific job!
What a difficult job the judges must have this week. There are so many excellent pieces in Advanced and this is another one. I'm afraid I have to disagree with the comments about the first lines: I loved them and they drew me in with their mystery causing me to want to keep on reading. Well done.
Wow! What imagery! I could see the grapes and almost taste them. This is terrific. The poem flowed very well:)
Very majestic. It gave me a taste of what the angels must experience in God's presence. I like the many layers: a good read the first time, worth reading again to see what I missed.
Beautiful. I'm sure this would make a great song!
Linda, I was a judge this week, so I wasn't able to comment until now. This poem rocked my socks off. The imagery was awesome, your words choice sublime. I want to write like you when I grow up. You blessed me tremendously this week! Thank you so much.
Awesome entry! A very worthy winner :)
I am speechless! You have a special gift!

Linda, this is packed with such power. It is just awesome. I love it.
This is really beyond words to express how beautifully you have described our Lord in this piece. I took my breath away and filled my heart with warmth. You are a blessing and a gifted talent. May God continue to bless you as you honor Him.
This is very beautiful. I am very inspired. Thank you.
Wow, another classic here. This was outstanding.
Linda, No one does this beautiful, lyrical, inspirational poetry better than you. This is a wonderful tribute to our Lord.
