Waters of Life from the Rock


Unyielding stone,
no place for seed
to take root and flourish.
And yet—
He who made the stone
can bring life
from its unpromising surface.
How much more, then,
can spring from the fleshy heart,
obdurate though it may seem,
when a seed is nourished
by words of life from the Rock?
