The Rock

I will praise You, for You have answered me and have become my salvation. The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.

Psalm 118:21-22

If rocks could talk,
one would tell a tale
of sorrow and of might.
It would recall heavy steps,
weighty words waning from
hope and endless tattered tears.

If rocks could talk,
one would recall that
three days can transform
the week, the year and eternity.
The sullen soldiers stood as sentry,
the heavenly host ministered quietly,
while women came in grief and adoration.

If the Rock could have talked,
He would have declared again,
“It is finished,” Breathed last breath!
He may have said, “Peace be with you,
and peace I give to you. For it was for you
I came and died so for eternity you may live.

P. Wolf
