scarlet poppy drink

Resurrection
 
Golgotha darkened
  Surreal clouds portend blood
Gloomy hill sickened
 
Nonchalant soldiers pass time
  Cast lots cursed a boring clime
Poppy gall juice drink offered
  Glimpse of revival deferred
 
Bore the cross with
  The tasks on earth as promised
Said it is finished
 
Redemption at last
  Ghost given up ascended
A third day rising
 
The known world shaken
  Healing started gradually
Long time but began

Poppies have long been used as a symbol of sleep, peace, and death. In classical mythology, poppy’s bright scarlet color signifies a promise of resurrection.

Inspired by Robert L Martin.

So thankful for the resurrection of Jesus, Resurrection power can
raise people up out of some very difficult circumstances. I’ve seen it happen.
