Water of Life

Living Water

Water of life, water alive,
Gentle drops fall
Making circles in the lake,
Widening, rippling, stippling the surface
Sinking softly onto soil,
Soaking into earth,
Sending message of renewal,
Regrowth, resurrection.

A gentle baptism of water and spirit,
Cleansing, healing,
Washes away darkness
Sin, disease and decay,
Arousing new hope in all it reaches.

th

But water can also bring
Deluge of death,
Tsunami shattering
Trees, buildings, lives,
Brings chaos, confusion,
Dead bodies in putrefying piles.

How then can we find consolation
In the Lord’s promise of Living Water?

I am a poet, therefore I am crazy - see Shakespeare "the lunatic, the lover and the poet..." I also write plays and stories and do the press reports for my local WI. I ride a recumbent trike, a Hase Kettwiesel - I love it!
