Free form verse is not easy, but you are making it looking easy-peasy with this one! Incredibely expressive and beautiful expression of the Passion of Christ; such rich visualisations. A tiny bit of editing at the start would 'hook' the reader in more quickly, but otherwise - wow! God bless.

O.K. I'll admit it. I usually skip all the poetry (sorry), but the title got me, I read it and it was absolutely beautiful. Inspired me to worship. Thank you.

You're quite an artist yourself! This is beautiful. I especially like the analogy of the crushed grape and the river of crimson.
Wow! Very powerful work here! Great job!

Very pretty. Good job.
I agree with Ali that the first few lines were a little confusing to me and could be better if edited, but the poem turned out to be very beautiful. I loved the line about crushing the perfect fruit. Such a strong image. Terrific job!
What a difficult job the judges must have this week. There are so many excellent pieces in Advanced and this is another one. I'm afraid I have to disagree with the comments about the first lines: I loved them and they drew me in with their mystery causing me to want to keep on reading. Well done.

Wow! What imagery! I could see the grapes and almost taste them. This is terrific. The poem flowed very well:)
Very majestic. It gave me a taste of what the angels must experience in God's presence. I like the many layers: a good read the first time, worth reading again to see what I missed.

Linda, this is packed with such power. It is just awesome. I love it.
This is really beyond words to express how beautifully you have described our Lord in this piece. I took my breath away and filled my heart with warmth. You are a blessing and a gifted talent. May God continue to bless you as you honor Him.
