A Year of Seeing: May 21: “Stone and Water”

Stone and Water


Be a stone, planted firm as a cliff,

on which the waves of reaction

are exhausted and eventually settle

and gently lap the sandy shore.


Be a stream of water, a river,

whose persistent flow and presence

crosses the rigid boundary of the stone

by passing through it–and beyond. 


Be the stone, be the water.

A practice of prayer guides the heart

to know which and when.
