Wednesday Festival: Interpreted by Love

washed up
left high and dry
but telling the story
of storms
and turbulence
of erosion
and carving out
weathered and worn
brought to life
though organically dead
bleached and weathered
drawing speculation
and interpretation
but retaining mystery
for none can really know
the journey
whose ending
has culminated
in beauty.
None can know
but there is room
for gratitude.
And the cross that Jesus bore - 
did it take on another life?
Did it wash up on some other shore, 
bleached clean,
hosting new life
and new possibility
and telling a whole other story?
Redeemed in cleansing water
released to recreate
another life giving story
a story of love.
