Alabaster ~ A to Z Challenge

Exquisite alabaster jar

Holds expensive perfume

A woman, disdained for

Immoral reputation, seeks

Jesus as he dines

Wordless, she anoints

His feet with costly fragrance

And her tearful kisses… In

Sweet-spiced aroma swirl

Her reverence, love, gratitude

Mingled with the Lord’s

Gracious mercy…

His public declaration

That her sins are forgiven

Put guest’s censorious

Judgment to shame
