Contemplation of 1 Corinthians 6:19

1 Corinthians 6:19 New International Version (NIV)
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;

A tapestry of open-eyed dreams
Dreamweavers weave and hawk
for the price of other’s souls,
“Dreamers do not pay,” they say
mellow dreams, salty as an ocean breeze,
replete, with the thrill of a temporal victory.

Come into the light they said,
from the darkness of this world,
all need do is play, worship the worshipful master,
swear a few oaths, learn fables and strange words,
then you’ll belong to the guild of widows sons,
and the roof of the world will be your perch.

But, I rejected Satan’s empty promises,
surrendered in my inner being
to God who is within me, and to whom I belong,
for Mercy’s fountain flows,
within living temples like mine,
and, God’s Love like his word touches all souls.

 

PROMPT:

1 Corinthians 6:19New International Version (NIV)
