The Holy Spirit Gift

A wedding gown pure white, the sign of change aquatic. The baptism of water, fire — sins death spurs life. Sweet oil like rain, offer of praise — symbiotic. The raise and court of hands; the congregation’s rife emotion grabs the Father’s attention, not lame. Son’s hands stretched wide, received by the heavens. Christ sends the comforter, the wise, the healer too — the names synonymous — the Holy Spirit gift — our friend. We’re touched in fellowship, the precipitous reach. The Spirit gives us fruit as we believe; the tree grows love, joy, peace and patience too; we’re given each and “ness” of kind, good, faith and gentle — all sweetens “we.” Of self-control, the one we are afraid to pick — we must! The freedom sates; it takes away our fear. Our hunger pangs? We’re filled and safe, not sick. The Holy Spirit cleanses us — our conscience clear. 11/29/2019 Holy Spirit Poetry Contest Sponsor: Chantelle Cooke

Beautifully written, Kim, and a sure winner for the contest. Better yet your faith shines thru in this insightful verse. Many thanks for your kind comment re Alexa. Of all places, the idea came to me in church this morning when my mind wandered off from the pastor's sermon - Lord forgive me - ha! Best to you - BoB
