Garden – Décima

Reject deception. Walk in light.
Have fellowship and know what’s true.
Let’s show it in the things we do.
Don’t stumble through the dark of night.
Confess: we haven’t done what’s right.
We’ve stained ourselves repeatedly.
They ate the fruit. In turn are we
blocked from entering the garden.
Blood brings righteousness and pardon.
It cleanses. Jesus cleanses me.

Ronovan Hester offers the rhyme word “garden” to be used in a D line of a décima having rhyme pattern ABBAACCDDC for this week’s challenge. I am thinking of 1 John 1.

  1. Frank,
    I like your use of imperatives and the active voice: and the ending, a passive (glad) acceptance of the power of Jesus’s blood which is the active agent of our receiving cleansing, righteousness. Well done.
