Lilith's Song

Image
What can be said of She The woman who dared to be greater than He Give her honor for magnifying the dark Desire and domination are rewards of her labor Come to her Eat. Drink. Satisfying impulses While restraints are bound Revel in her pleasures In the dark she appears Children beware, mothers fear Her way is one of vengeance Bringing men into her lair Her wiles hide the grip of terror Her beauty blinds the eyes Don't go into her web Submit not to her embrace Her rule will end Her ways will stop Darkness reveals She The woman who dared to be greater than He. Inspiration: Poem inspired by the woman of the "Mystery of Babylon" described in Revelation. The Christian must not partake of her allures and remain faithful to Christ. Based upon Revelation 15:5 - And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. © 2021 The Refined Poet. All rights reserved.

Bright Day ...A Haiku

    sunlight from above   waves of beauty reflect   leaves fade instantly   Inspiration: Poem demonstrating duality of life's experiences. Sunlight can cause beauty to show on waters, while cause leaves to fade and eventually dry out. So, in life, one event can cause one person joy and another, sorrow. Based upon "Romans 11:22 - Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God."   ©  2021 The Refined Poet.  All rights reserved.

 Juliet said, "Parting is such sweet sorrow" We know how her story ended Our time apart offered no sweetness Only feelings of sorrow and emptiness Emotions of regret and joy battle for victory As I ponder the storms of our relational history Regret is pinned downed conceding defeat Present joy has rendered past sins obsolete Elated to set my eyes upon you No sadness, only hope renewed Excitement fills me from the core to the bone As I open my mouth declaring, "Welcome Home!" Inspiration: This poetic piece describes the joy at a long awaited reunion. Based upon the story of the Prodigal Son found in Luke 15:11-24 – "And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.” ~TRP~ © 2021 The Refined Poet. All rights reserved.
