Publisher:  Tate Publishing, LLC Type: 


Copyright:  May 25, 2010 ISBN-13:  9781616634384

A collection of poems depicting spiritual growth from the search for meaning through the suffering of confession and reconciliation, to the glorious unfolding of self-revelation and purpose.

Barnes and Noble

Official Website of J. J. Blackwood

Inspired by the Songs of Solomon, J.J. Blackwood’s Frisson of Spirit reveals her poetic journey of discovery and revelation, pointing readers toward the one true spirit of God. J.J. Blackwood brings alive the universal questions that plague all mankind about worth, purpose, and the meaning of life with beautiful poetry born out of her most intense moments of sorrow and joy. As John Keats’s conception of life in poetry sought expression in the soul, so J.J. Blackwood adds the expression of the spirit and the will in Frisson of Spirit to alleviate the suffering that is an integral part of the human condition.”   


This Scarlet Woman

Scarlet is the color of the skin that I wear,
fevered by a passion thatís beyond compare.
By the light of the moon I glow with a flare,
dancing as a flame that is ready to sear.

Burnished by the sun in a tropical clime,
heated and treated by loveís perfect rhymes.
Reflected in the stars like drops of lifeís blood,
a rose unfolding from the grasp of its bud.

Some often wish they could color me blue.
Tainted and painted my scarlet shines through.
My nature just canít hide my crimsoning hue,
Iím the woman who wonít fit in anyoneís shoe.

Scarlet I be with all my energy set free,
an unbridled mare, a wave cresting the seas.
Finding new pastures that are ever more green,
a refraction of sunsets in splendor and sheen.

Some say sins are scarlet, but I disagree,
and a scarlet woman isnít judged in degrees.
So I wear my scarlet, but my soul canít be seen,
Jesus Christís scarlet blood has washed it clean.
