From the Fountain

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 eagerly 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.
