ichor (revisited)


Petrichoric bliss

enchants droughted inhale. Drenched

by Red of sword’s chords.



*the sword of the centurion who pierced Christ

“…for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.” 1 Cor. 10:4

    Beautiful words and song to take us to the end of 2017. Maybe the rain can bring some of this spirit into 2018. I hope 2018 brings much happiness to you and your family Vanessa and thank you for your writing in 2017.

    I love this poem, Vanessa. Such a rich choice of words and symbolism, and, of course, a beautiful song. Really grateful to read this as my snow day comes to an end.

    Next up for me this evening, reading Augustine’s Confessions.

      Hi! Thank you so much for saying, Stephen. I really appreciate it. And I’m so happy if it touched you!

      I am curious how your evening reading went? I have yet to read that. My list is getting rather long. I was neglectful last year. Hope to remedy that a little this year.

      So, it’s been snowing? I’m sorry I haven’t paid attention while immersed in this perfect summer night with friends at the beach…😁
