Crimson Nectar


In earth bound vessels

Frail viewers missing the point

Solemn beats

Float towards eternity

Peirce through misconceptions


Enriched in stars

Share in the resplendent burden

Exhilarated union

Release the soul from this inhibiting pen

Flashes of beauty now rise from delight

Harboured in this new dimension


Christ in me

The deep passion permeating

Rich red wine

Heavens golden goblet

Crimson nectar sweet to my taste.

  2. Alan,

    I liked the triune of poetic examples, pertaining to ‘Passion.’ All very fitting in their own individual ways.

    Release the soul from this inhibiting pen – love this line!

    This is wonderful and PASSIONate poem, Alan. So many excellent lines . Hard to pick a favorite. It strikes me as describing what happens when a person embraces his/her faith. When what is UNUSUAL becomes USUAL. Definitely ‘crimson nectar’ and a ‘new dimension’ are part of that experience. I am wondering if the painting was painted by someone you know?

  7. Laurie Kolp says:

    Yes, there’s such freedom in acceptance, which comes from letting go of inhibitions, right?
