Cross And Flame

Skye here. I'm one of Copper's Insiders. I know the rules of AS and will do my best to follow them. ***This post discusses religion.***

This turned out to be a poetry post.

Cross and Flame

Refined, defined this girl

Bread and Cup

Accepted on bent knee at the altar

Even this wild girl, this proud girl

Knelt

She who never bent her head to anyone

Bowed

Bread and wine

Body and blood

As she proclaimed the mystery of faith:

Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again

Litany on her lips

Grape juice

Bread

Served by intinction

Bread dipped in the cup

And eaten

A moment of sanctity,

Holiness

Wholeness

Wholly, wholly, holy

For a moment at least

Peace

As the organ hums hymns

This wild, defiant girl kneels

In the grace of the sacrament

Scarred and scared

But still somehow sacred
