    From the Fountain

    The author lives in Utah, USA


    From freely flowing fountain,

    living water, pure as love,

    fully fills the holy vessel.

    Willingly I enter

    liquid abundance of the font,

    become a momentary embryo

    wholly covered by

    God’s goodness,

    each part immersed

    in this new birth,

    then quickened by the

    Spirit’s breath.

    In desert of thirst,

    shadow of death,

    I willingly receive

    the copious cup.

    Drinking deeply,

    I empty it completely

    and am perfectly imbued

    with abounding grace

    of living water flowing

    freely from the fountain.
