PURPLE

Purple Robe and Anemones 1937 by Henri Matisse

FREE VERSE POEM

MY JESUS

STANDING BEFORE THE ROMAN GUARDS

I SEE MYSELF IN A PURPLE ROBE

AMONG MANY I CAUSED YOUR AGONY, YOUR DEATH

YOUR BLOOD-STAINED ROBE FORESHADOWED YOUR ROYAL KINGSHIP AND RESURRECTION

BECAUSE OF YOU, NOW MY LIFE AMENDED

I SEE MYSELF IN YOUR PURPLE ROBE

Thanks for visiting your scribe for love, truth and peace
