it is what it is, but not neccessarilly what it seems

PASSIONTIDE
The days of death,
the wickedness of believing
the idiolatry of power
bear down the soul
seeking true faith

The sophistry of disinformation
the metaphor of lies
where shades of grey become
arbitrary colours
a kaleidoscope of error.

Misdirection to deceive
the saints: The deceiver
as saviour dressed;
The dragon mistaken
for the lamb

Seek the true sign
the path indelibly
with crimson marked
from wounds by
love accepted.

Seek the true sign:
the symbol of shame,
humiliation and death
become the sign,
the true sign,
of
Life

Reviewed by Andre Bendavi ben-YEHU 4/8/2003
"Passiontide" is a composition that mingles all lived emotions and mix with imagination in the ever creation of emotions that creates wonders to fulfill Nature's intuition.

I have enriched the bank account of my mind with this treasure called "passiontide".

Praised be the Author of "passsiontide".
