Holy Empyrean born of night ...
baptized in heavenly celestial light.
Forgiveness granted ... a most glorious resurrection,
a new path to follow leading in God's direction.

Walk on water ... pass thru doors of time ...
psalms of healing rebirth ... silence requiem chimes.
In a garden of Eden, in a hidden paradise ...
in cleansing ceremony, sin is offered up to forgiving sacrifice.

Wrapped in robes of gold shimmering,
wise men bring gifts of jewels glimmering.
Wings on palms grant freedom of flight ...
look towards the heavens, witness the circling light.

Rites of passage is guaranteed,
atonement grants this venial heart freed.
On bended knee, whispered prayers and vows,
Past memories of pain ... take their final bows.

Pharohs and prophets collect a visions sign ...
scriptures passed down, their message divine.
This poets soul released from midnight's tomb,
stationed in waiting, protected by a blessed cocoon.

An angel sings her verse of love's undying emotions,
prayers are whispered ... promises of devotion.
Resurrection grants this gift of healing rebirth,
witness the miracle of his creations, both in heaven and on earth.

Janet Marie

for DeVante' promised, with love always.

This was just beautiful and so well written, loved the flow

The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

It is only a test ...

Hey Janet, This is gorgeous. I learned a new word ! Empyrean - highest Heaven. Fantastic! Love the way you write. I think I have to share this with others too. Hope I can find this "rebirth" you have depicted here. Could really use it about now.

Peace to you,  Geoff
