Love is Forever...

 

Sun-dazed

Dust-choked

 air

Shadows

 darken

rocky ground;

All eyes

turned

upward

to see

the face

above them

Features drawn    Agony    Spikes through flesh and bone and

blood spills down, down   Turns the baked soil red amid their feet

From within

the long

shadows

Cast upon

rocky ground

Even now

We hold

this image

In our minds

For time

invents no

change

The soil at

our feet

Still red

The crowd

Gazes upward

To see the

Face

 still restless

Cursing

Crying

from the darkness

To be forgiven

Like the thief

To find the way

Have faith

To do what’s right

To step from the shadows

And into His Light

Very powerful.

You pictured a scene, one, as if you were there witnessing it.

Very well done.

Oh, the marvelous, eternally life-changing hope when we look upon Him there and accept His sacrifice as payment for our sin! You present a beautiful picture of the cross, and your words portray the depth of its meaning. The details are profound.
