nails (20161130)

if you could find
a nail from the cross
what color would it be

stained red and
glistening yet
after all these years

or just a pile of rust
(still the right color)
but destroyed by the

slow burn of oxygen
and time

  1. What Color Nail
    by atrmws

    It would be the color of light and of love
    Envy of the green hills, appalled at our world and its ills

    It would have pinned a hand, right through a glove
    It would have held Him high above

    And left within its woody bed, some hope
    And warmth and heart instead
