At first I thought your very well written poem was about a railway tunnel. I had never read this particular Bible story before. Your poem brought it to life.
I enjoyed the way you presented this in poetic fashion. That tunnel was an amazing accomplishment.
What a creative idea! You made the process come alive through your creative verse and I also like the application-like ending. As I was reading I started wondering if this was Hezekiah's tunnel, and then you confirmed I was on the right track when I got to the part about the springs.
What a wonderful, creative rendition of the story of Hezekiah's tunnel. The rhythm flowed with words that painted vivid pictures.

I loved the practical application: "And lives too are a blessing, a channel of God's grace..."
Great narrative poem!
It's not a common Bible story, and this tells it so creatively. Well done!
Unique and original telling of this Bible story. You have a gift for poetry. Very well done.
A well written, very easy to read story poem.

Our lives should encourage others to live faithfully before God.

Your poetry never ceases to amaze me and this one is no exception! How do you do it? This is a great take on the topic too. I'm glad you gave the explanation at the end because I wouldn't have realised what it was about. And you've actually been there? Amazing!
Very creative. I like the way this flows. You can picture the hammers and pickaxes swinging as the men complete their tunnel. Nice work.
Powerfully intense and so well done!

God bless~
