The primal metaphor has been transposed
as sleep an affiance with death eludes
for death defective is but sleep. Alludes
to resurrection now: a dawning rosed
in bloody-red genesis, predisposed
to whited hues dazzling out in amplitudes.
In a debut collection of inspirational poems, Denise Sobilo invites readers to awaken to the Presence of the Divine through her introspective and often philosophical reflections.
Sobilo, whose poetry is inspired by both scripture and other writings, shares lyrical insight reflected in verse that touches on many themes and subjects including the blood-sacrifice wounds of salvific love, the absolution that surrounds a death bed, a feast that sates the soul’s appetencies and satisfies the mind, a mother’s spirit that rises to heaven again, and a potter’s wheel under a dervish hand.
The Favor of My Lord is a unique volume of poetry which provides an insightful perception of the spiritual aspects of this world that will inspire believers and non-believers alike to a deeper introspection and understanding of their own relationships with God.
