water …

abides abundantly in our human body

and Moses came to the Red Sea

and parted it

walked through it

to save the people of God


like Almighty One

Unknown Source of Life

coming to Mary

and entering her womb

taking residence

to save the people of God


water …

earth’s source of life

God walked mysteriously  

in the fiery furnace spinning

dew in an inferno of death

for three youths of God


like Christ our Savior

claiming reborn joy

by lying in a cold grave

and rising, bringing life

by death to people in a tomb

like water …

dissolving agent

God permeates death with life

and man and woman

are saturated with Life’s love

filling with divine presence:


salvation by solvation!
