Topic: Fragrance (10/24/05)

TITLE: Keep's Sake

Hidden deep down inside the pit of our souls,
Is a very special gift.
The gift longs to emerge and grow,
From the dark and furtive soil of our spiritual nature.

I feel the ugly words of prejudice and hatred,
That’s impeding my gift to spawn and mature.
Damaging and destructive as they my be,
They are always lurking and waiting to strangle life itself.

At first, my desire is to hoard and keep,
Those things that are most valuable and precious.
But, it the freedom of Love and Charity,
That is the most desirable.

So, when my Savior and Lord,
Appears in my life.
I will freely give and admonished him,
With my most valuable keepsake.

And, I will rejoice forever more.
For my soul is now set free.
And, the wonderful fragrance that surrounds me,
Will be eternal.


Luke: 7; 37(KJV) “And, behold a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment.”

Lovely poem, but what does it have to do with the topic? Also, what is the connection between the poem and the Bible verse?

I understand the the "keepsake" refered to in the title is your own alabaster box of items that are precious to you. A few edits would clarify this for your readers. There are several spelling and punctuation boo-boos. I really think this poem has great potential; the concept of keeping treasures is a beauty.

Interesting poem. We call this a "push", hard hitting. Grammar not withstanding, there is room to grow in this poem. Thanks for sharing.

I'm not a great lover of poems without a rhythmic beat, so my comments won't help, as I found no lilting lift...but nice for that type of poem.
