Water and the Word: Rolls

In the river emanating  

from the heavenly throne,

ethereal crystal flow

is primordial gift,

reflecting creation’s blueprints,

both spiritual and architectural,

as it winds through

the center of civilization.


Would that we could find

and keep from despoiling

even such a rill,

not for the sake

of hoarding,

but rather for sharing.


“For you… and you…

and all of us,

the river rolls.”


There is a river whose streams

make glad the city of God,

the holy habitation

of the Most High. God

is in the midst of the city;

it shall not be moved;

God will help it

when the morning dawns.

(Psalm 46:4-5)
