A Caster Of Stones Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

A Caster Of Stones

Rating: 4.4

a caster of killing stones
thy shalt not in judgment be
moral of spoken message
to every nation race creed

‘let he who is without sin
cast the first stone... ’

every stone drops discarded
empty is every judging sinful hand
sin corrupted created Adam and Eve
sin is the stain upon murderous Cain

We are a world of casters of stones and the Bible apply tells us as you repeat it in your poem that 'let he who is without sin cast the first stone.' If we apply this everyday stone casting would end. A very good poem. Lynn

The use of the biblical theme and the imagery of Cain express perfectly the predicament through which humanity is passing. Very impressive poetic achievement.

Dear Terence- I too was drawn in by the title being pulled in from the pages. And then because as well stated have thrown far to many stones in my own lifetime, something I continually attempt to learn from- Thank You for Your Invitation- Peace~ James
