Rainbow Summer School: Indigo Eyes



His indigo eyes pierce my heart;
The chambers divide, fall apart.

The half with pain, woe, and loss
I lay down at the foot of the Cross.

The other, filled with promise and love,
I raise in thanksgiving to God above.

I am participating in Ms. Jenny's Rainbow Summer School, where we study the colors of the rainbow. This week's study is color indigo. I chose to use this color to illustrate my current faith journey. I realize it is simplistic but my brain has been on strike this week. Regardless, I hope you enjoy my attempt.

Lovely. What a wonderful picture of faith, too. He does take our pain, our loss, our grief, and bear it for us. I've never thought of poetry as worship before...but it is. Especially in your more than capable hands :-)

I agree with PJ about the way you chose to use your words for this.
