Arranged Love


It’s poetry time…well, it’s what I call poetry, whether or not the majority of you out there thinks so is a matter of faith on my part. I am spending most of my writing time trying to finish RETOOLED before the year is over. So, I plan on filling the pages of Soulfari with some of my poetry from years past. Hopefully they will bless you and help you reflect on our Father God who loves us so. Blessings, Jay

Arranged Love

I burn with images
of a crossing

A personal genesis
of purification

Where scarlet stains
cleansed to white
as if I was innocent

Where I dance with
the sureness of forgiveness

Where arranged love
took the darkness from my soul
and placed life there

Well from someone who knows they are not a poet... your rhyme and verse move me to worship God in His infinite awesomeness. Thank you!
