Choosing a rock

After Colossians 1:15-20

An island, a rock:
water lapping against it
threatens like a storm
cloud in the distance.
We argue the question:
do we embrace the waves,
or do we climb and cling
to the rock. Is this island,
this rock, strong enough
to bear our weight and
resist the storm, or do we
cast off and float among
the growing waves and 
swells. We choose
the rock, holding
all things together.
