Hearts like water

Lamentations 2:19 “…pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord…” (NIV)*

Let it all out

like liquid flowing freely

the tipping pitcher poured,

emptied—before the Lord.

As Hannah, weeping for a child to hold.

As Mary, grieving her child—gone.

Holding nothing back

at his feet, splash.

Then, see what grows from seeds

watered by sweet release.
