I left you saying I was about to do the water. Once I got going, I didn't have time to photograph the steps.
Here is a close up of the willow leaves as they hang from the shoulder.
And a front and back view
Willow trees seek water so much so that their roots can break open pipes in following a leak. They are found to be plentiful along many streams and waterways. Ancient words of Isaiah the Prophet promised good for the children to come who would spring up as the willows do by these waterways.
“Water is poured for the thirsty.
Flowing and quenching dry ground.
Blessings are poured for your children
As water where willows are found.”
--Isaiah the Prophet
But I wonder if the waters the children of our world find available is the thirst quenching kind? Have we been careful to leave waters – real or symbolic – that is good for them? Or do they only have leaks to follow?
Quote is a poem I wrote adapting the words and thoughts from that prophecy of Isaiah.
