Sunday Poetry with Jenean C. Gilstrap. Today Purple Passion

purple passion

nights edged

in lilac seams

where loveless love

lies passim


o holy grail


dreams float quiet

into waters

purple passion

ship wrecked

souls take flight

spirits scream

to be redeemed


o holy grail


spewing forth

words unheard

the dark abyss

opens wide

welcoming all

on the high

high tide


o holy grail





          in lilac seams

Jenean C Gilstrap

Since childhood, Ms. Gilstrap has had a love of words-of writing and other arts. An individualist, she chooses not to follow any pre-conceived pattern for the outlay of these words – rather, she allows them the freedom to forge their own path as they make their way from her heart to pen to paper. Her art work involves both photography and mixed media on large canvasses. She is a weekly featured poet in Yareah Magazine where her works have appeared for more than a year. Her piece The Granite God was the winning poem in Painted Bride Quarterly Sidebar #12 [2012]. Her work has been featured in performance poetry theatrical productions in Louisiana and her short story, Retribution, published in the Helicon Literary Magazine there. She and her gypsywomanworld blog are included as character/story elements in Ghost Key, the fictional work of award-winning author Trish MacGregor. Her first volume of poetry [2013], words unspoken, is available in both paperback and on kindle at amazon. She currently divides her time between her home in Louisiana and the east coast as she completes her second volume of poetry to be published in 2013.
