eternity teases you off the treadmill of time
draws you up into the stillness of a moment.
Hold a pose then, like the Saguaro Cactus –
spiney arms goal posted to frame the sky
prickly limbs pointing – There! See?
shoulders holding a perfect port de bras of praise
so gather eternity inside you like water
feel it transpire from ramified roots
to cool and nourish the thirst in your soul.
While time hangs a misty veil over the valley
and eternity beckons you to the desert edge
walk the White Tank Mountain trail
stand where water pooled in the rocks
to sustain the Hohokam
let the Word petroglyphed on your heart
give mute testimony to the One who
walked this earth before time.
Like the Saguaro Cactus
know that your roots in this world are shallow
let your reservoirs tap Living Water
Christ in you, the hope of glory.
