stilled moments

for a few hours this morning
60 or so shepherds gathered in one pasture
who are called to feed lambs
and tend sheep
responded to the call of their Shepherd
came together to a place of rest
and drank from stilled waters

one by one
each face bowed to drink
only one face was seen
reflected in the cool quiet waters

and the paradox is
this single face that was seen
is the face of the One who is Living Water
the One who says drink of me and you will never thirst again
and yet
the it is the voice of this same One
that echoes through the ages still


arms wide open
