The Scent of Salvation






Perfumed his feet, mint cherry bits

Billowed musk, deep ocean fleet



White linen pillows of his hair

Earth’s smoke and fire sun, oh, so rare



Nailed hands to life, air goes to flee

Sweet grace and mercy to earth be



Needs and wants, they’re satisfied

Complete in 14 stations by



The garden throbs with joy, anew

Rose petal, leaves and honey dew



Bouquet of rainbow, jelly melts

In Eucharist, gold blossoms felt.







Virgin falls, stream of wine, so clear,

White wafer bread, a dearly gear



Light bubbly fogs of wood, a whiff

Spiking fountain, a sacred cliff



Angel’s touch turns flowers, hope.

“John Paul, we pray,” pleads dearest Pope.



You and me, together free,

All nations free! God’s Kingdom be!



Together, we, breathe scent; and smell

In God’s blue cross,  the flames will tell



Holy workers and priests be sent

Saint Hannibal, “Rogate” tent!



Flash heaven rays, the halo roofs

Clouds on floors, assembled loops



Rows of Saints are gathered now -

Salvation scent, true love, a vow





Cool fragrant dawn and mist of night

From heaven’s pond, heal bones and fright



For you and me, salvation comes

St. Magdalene, anoint us might!



My Lord, my God, be glory, be!

Salvation breeze, Holy Trinity!



Breathe - Christ is risen!



Breathe - Christ is risen!



“Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of the faithful,

And enkindle in them, the fire of Your divine love.

Send forth Your Spirit, and they shall be created,

And You shall renew the face of the earth.”



Breathe – Christ is risen!
