lovely poem--I especially liked the line "in eternal wait for the coming hallelujahs."
I enjoyed this SO much. The form was perfect for the content, which was rich and evocative. I agree; this is a keeper, to be read again and again. Its message is powerful.

Congrats on EC. I liked it from the git go. Very impressive.
I love the gentle rhythm and the internal rhymes - they carried me along and wouldn't let me stop reading. Stunningly beautiful.
Jim, I wanted to pop in here and also congratulate you on your win. The judges thought it was an exquisite piece of writing, and as one said, the last stanza gave her shivers. Exactly the sort of response you want to evoke through your words. Well done on this very though provoking poem (and our prayers are with you).

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
Jim, there is something quaint and nostalgic about your poetry. It is calming yet profound, reflecting I'm sure the soul of the one who penned the lines. Congratulations on your win of this lovely poem.
Very nice job of evoking the historicity/antiquity of our faith through your language usage. Congratulations!
