This one confused me a bit. The part about "that man's not your husband" threw me off. I thought I was getting better at interpreting your work, but I'm lost here. Care to explain or would you rather be mysterious? Cheers,SLC
woman at the well...becuase the man she lives with now is not her husband...nicely done...
Gladly Spencer, this poem is based on John 4The Samaratin Woman At The WellPeace ~ Rene
That does help, Renee, thanks. :)
Hmm...still thinking about this one. I like the imagery quite a lot, though :)
This is beautiful. For some reason, I thought right away of the woman at the well. Your poetry is very intriguing.Thought you might like to know that I have a visitor on my blog, today, who will be sharing her grampa's true-life adventures as a Rider on one of the Orphan Trains! There's room for everyone to gather in close and get to know Donna, while enjoying her wonderful story-telling talents. I look forward to seeing you there. Yaya Yaya's Changing World
that was ....extraodinary...
I was worried for your marriage until I read that it was based on a parable. Phew! So happy to find that I totally misinterpreted. :)
Yeah, that one line in the middle is twisting up a lot of folks...I like it! Just when you think you have everything figured out...whoa :)Peace ~ Rene
drink deeply, Lady Rene...
An appropriate yet inspiring poem for Lent... living water. Great work.
Rene, Rene, Rene. I've been so negligent in keeping up with blogs, etc. So what a nice treat to come to this one. And I was so proud of myself... oh, wait, pride cometh before the fall. Anyway, I knew what you were writing about and it's lovely! A great story, and one that's so important to remember. Hooray for the spring countdown!! Peace, hugs. ~ Ginny
Made me think of that post I did a while ago about the woman in a village in India who was ostracized by the entire village because she touched the arm of an outsider at the well....
Reminds me of the old story of the woman at the well.
Your allusion was clear to me too. Don't change a thing! I loved its rhythm.
Very nicely done.
wonderful. Love it totally. Love this bit in particular:"from a wellthat is unfit for me"nice.
Please drop a penny in a poet's hat :
