Stained Am I



Stained am I, and streaked

by this palsy, pollen-spots

falling as table-scraps onto

purity’s napkin. Holy

rain, wash my hands,

my feet, my heart, that

I would bloom beauty

in shades of redemption,

where mercy meets

malfeasance with a

gown white as snow.

    Melody, this is beautiful. Thank you.

  2. Ohhhh, gloriously beautiful and reverent, Mel. (An aside: I don’t like that stuff that falls off the flower and stains my tablecloth, shirt, hands….)

    Lol; I am so literal. I looked at your comment and thought, “Melody, has a stain remover that gets rid of those horrible lily stains. Wow! Must ask what it is.” Then my figurative brain said, ‘Try reading that again.” Excellent!

    A beautiful flow of words to go with the lovely photo of the lily!
