one HELL of a mistake

entry picture

I know a hill.

I see it often

in my shamed memory

 

a bloodstained hill

where on high

at the top of a centre-piece cross

the mocking sign

INRI

Jesus of Nazareth the king of the Jews

 

the vision 

passed on by word of ancient mouths

visits my guilt on occasions

and reminds my soul

 

how very much

I must somehow go on trying

to kill that flower of regret

each time it decides to grow again.

Rose, how the Judas Iscariot did I manage to overlook this knock-out piece? Thank Heaven (pun excluded) I came across it now.

Fantastic!

I won't blaspheme Rose by using the three well-worn
well-known capitals followed by an exclamation mark but I will say this beautiful poem has blown my Christmas gifted socks off! including the aforementioned....! Thank you.Jemima.
