Water Turned to Wine

Image

Water stands in clay jars,

They’ve run out of wine –

This is all that’s left;

But when it’s lifted,

The contents poured out,

Red liquid stains the ground.

We are emptied, dried out 

All that’s left is vinegar and dust,

But as blood trickles down,

We no longer see ashes and decay,

But blinding grace;

We are perfectly changed,

Like water turned to wine.
