Poems. Prayers & Promises

Last


I see the King, Alpha and Omega
Sweet consummation echoed in his voice
Living word, incarnation fulfillment.

I see the volleys of comets red fire
A rich crimson stream of love and mercy
Stains the shore of the crystal diamond lake.

I see the last rainbow through clouds burning
Loves consuming smoke dispersing evil
Shudders the ravaged cluster of the heart.

I see the mountains slide into the sea
Amethyst shreds strewn, bled and ripped apart
The last and the first his reigning beauty.

I see love captured in pure white linen
Purchased stars washed clean in sacrificed blood
Eternal praise radiates heavens light.

  2. Beautiful words Alan! I like your imagery, especially the "volleys of comets red fire" as well as "the crystal diamond lake" but the closing stanza is my favorite.

  3. Beautiful imagery here Alan--though it all sounds a little frightening as well. Thanks for posting this and responding to my prompt. I am thinking about lightning--a rare thing here.

  4. Lovely poem - the song "what a wonderful world" came to mind. I also sensed the spiritual. The poem seemed to see saw between Heaven and Earth. Loved it.
