Rahab - The Scarlet Cord by kevissimo Rahab - The Scarlet Cord by kevissimo
"so secreted into cold air
they made their way
from your roof
your bed
bound by promise
and sealed with a sign
to wave when the Day would come

and come it will...
but spared (you and yours)
from the falling swords
by this silken pledge

Jericho Jericho
your dead
will pile like wet leaves
choking the gutters

walls will fall
stone blood
and ash

and in the harlot's window
a scarlet cord
made of midnight oaths
will be all that remains"

Rahab is a fascinating character, and You have made her even more intersting. Calmness of her face became both stunning and shattering for me, when I'd realized her awareness of what would happen to Jericho.
Hope that my poor English abilities have let me express it clearly.
:+fav:of course.

So glad you commented...thank you. Most don't know the story at all and to see what you do in her face makes me very happy...
