Crimson Chalice

A wine from a pure vine
Shared in tender beauty
Poured out from a crimson chalice.

Taste the sharpness of the fruit
Strong sweetness entwined with goodness
Scarlet blossom, delicate richness.

From a rich nectar ruby drops seep
Delicate tears cascade, overflow, so
drink the dew and be thankful.

(I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. – John 15:6)


  1. that last verse is so emotional to me...the crimson tears...the thankfulness..its powerful alan

  2. There is so much to be thankful for! Your poetry expresses this so well.

  3. Beautiful imagery, Alan! I particularly like the third stanza and the emphasis on gratitude.

  4. so much to be thankful for when i think of what he has done for us... a beautiful verse alan

  5. yes, this!
    in Him, through Him, for Him
