Holy Water

I once believed that water deemed Holy was water that had been blessed by a priest, minister, or other holy person; that it was contained in a vessel and would be used as a sacred symbol in services such as christening or baptism. Now, having shed at least part of my ignornance, I also know it as follows:


Holy Water


Container and contained,

Is–All–Holy Water. It permeates,

And is.

Everything perceptible

And conceivable,

From the most beautiful sunrise,

To a garbage-filled gutter. Holy Water, pervading,

Pours through, and is,

Every plant, rock, and animal. It glistens as Life Itself,

Through every human. No thing and no one,

Is left untouched. Ant, bear, and eagle,

And, yes, your body-mind and mine,

Are made of a drop divine.


Dare to Dream (and care for one another).

With heartfelt regards,
