Streams of Water

living streams of water
all around the world
moving, in connection
across the globe
through time and space
flowing, ever in motion
living waters of life

in our baptism, washed by the waters
flowing ever, connecting us
with John in the wilderness
with Christ, dying into the waters
rising into the spirit
washed clean, made holy
our lives forever changed
moving with the waters
living within our hearts
