Wine Stained

Isaiah 55:1
Is anyone thirsty?  Come and drink – even if you have no money!

Today we will be celebrating communion.  There is something of this theme in a poem I have been working at.  Then today my reading took me to this verse from Isaiah.  An invitation to quench our thirst. 

Wine Stained

Effervesence
Bursts old wine skins.

Wine He provides
Spills out.
Lives of the people it touches
Stained
With His blood red wine,
His love.

Stark red stains on the snow white
Hearts of his people
Should be highly visible,
Should be inviting,
Should say to those craving a drink
“Come there is more!”

Drink deep.
His cellars are vast.
