The Bloodstone

How would the world react,
too the verity of Al-'Alaq?

Would the unbelievers believe,
would the dissenters assent,
would combatants humble thyselves?

I've seen the bloodstone,
i've held it many times...
i've written about it...discreetly,
in a short series called,Laskrizon,
many have quested,many have questioned,
but,the one thing you cannot doubt,
once you behold it's wonderful uniqueness...

    ...till we understand who we truly are and what our purpose is. I'm responding in this manner from reading about the Al Alaq. Interesting, thought provoking write! :)

    Are you talking about that stone you found and whose picture you posted on Facebook? People of faith attribute much importance in the "sacred texts" which is words that have been revealed to certain people who have either written them or passed them out. These words are important for the people of that time, to open their spirit and life to a higher standard. It is God's work being done. And as history progresses more are revealed, therefore the mind must remain opened ...

    This is mysterious! I think I saw a movie once by this name, about African diamonds! Interesting one. Luv, Andrea

    Jay, I had to look up bloodstone and learned about a legend that says the bloodstone was formed from the blood of Christ dripping on the green earth and solidifying. It has been used as an amulet to protect against the evil eye and is a symbol of justice. Your poem is obviously very inspiring to me. Thank you for sharing this thought-provoking poem. Always love learning something new and this poem goes to my favorites. Love, Carolyn
