Aqueduct at the Temple

Aqueduct at the Temple

Water washes
Cleansing blood
From springs and rains
Collected in cisterns

Alongside the Western Wall
Past the Holy of Holies?
“No digging here
or we shall war against you
and bring the might of nations
against you”

Is the Ark of the Covenant within?
Hastily buried among the walls?
Covered by debris and blocked off?

Today inaccessible
God will reveal
Everything in its time

Temple upon temple
The miracle of moving stones
Larger than the Pyramid’s

The depths below
Are revealed hollow
Supported by arches above

Into the aqueduct
Where water once ran freely
To the pools of clear water
Baptise, baptise the people
Into Jesus.
