Red – An Elfje

Red
divine blood
shed with love
offering my soul salvation.
Hallelujah!

This short poem is an elfje. I followed the link of a blogger who liked one of my posts, and then followed a link on her site to another blogger who had posted a lesson on how to write this little gem of a poetry form. I decided to give it a try.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. this is really nice. You know, I thought I knew of most of the short forms, but have to admit to not knowing this one. Very neat, will most certainly add the form to my collection for future poeticizing. Thanks

  2. Thanks for sharing the information about the form– I’ve never heard of an Elfje before, but will definitely try my hand at writing one now. Lovely, passionate poem 🙂

  3. Just perfect, Linda! Thank you for sharing it and doing this journey of a poem a day for Lent. God bless you .. . and I’m off to find out about this form! It’s short . ..I like short!

    • Deb, You would be great at writing elfjes! They are so much fun. 🙂 And I think the occasional short poem is what is going to make 40 poems for Lent possible, plus God’s help, of course. Peace, Linda

  4. I think you have created an Elfje psalm.
    Thank you for your ‘ping’
    May we all, whatever our beliefs – rejoice in love and peace.
