    I will have to reread this tomorrow, its after 1 am... I "got" 4 and a half of the verses, and then became befuddled... I am not sure why, but I saw you as having Christ forgiving and freeing Lucifer, that even he could be sanctified... especially with "take these... greed." I love the language, imagery.. I'm just exhausted, I suspect, hence the head scratching. I have wanted to write something about Judas for a while, who pulled the short straw, if you ask me ;-) What true choice did he have?

    I do agree about Judas. It was God's plan, and it was a dirt job but someone had to do it. I am not sure that I would have behaved any different after the betrayal, given the soul shaking experience it must have been. yep! :)

    cont.... So, in the end, it is mankind who are saved from the fires of Hell, as each soul is enlightened by the truth, and old Lucifer, himself is cast into oblivion. Hope that helps. hugs, catie :)

    No, Cyndi, what I was going for, is that Lucifer, and his minions (the darkness and the demons) were the only ones sentenced, and therefore, locked in the puts of hell before hell, itself, was thrown into the lake of fire. Now, Lucifer, being the devil that he is, tries to bargin and trade his way out of hell, but Christ, the blood of Christ, has already redeemed man from these sins.

    I really just wanted to see what a crown of sonnets was. I looked here and of course the definition is limited. Sonnets were my original form to write with. Well Shakespearean sonnet form. I have since used the quatrain, villanelle and Quatern. I see the repetiton here that the sonnet calls for. I will do more research, but I wanted to say first say, I really like this poem. I actually normally do not like deep christain themes in poems, but this is excellently written. Good work.

    Hi Catie, this is an epic poem, well done even if not in meter, maybe you can create a new way of doing a crown of sonnets, I also want to thank you so much for my placement in your Message In A Bottle Contest, I am so honoured. Constance

    A very powerful write Catie, I loved it's intensity, hair raising affect Catie, don't worry about the dry spell, it never lasts, all writers feel it, we just need to sit with it, soon you'll be spilling from your heart again, thinking of you today and sending you a muse from the heavens, keep it in your pocket or better still close to your heart, have a blessed day my dear woman. xxx Rose
