Roots Without Water

. . . and I saw a tree sapling, vibrant and verdant; but when I blinked it was transformed into a gnarled and hollow trunk . . .

Deep roots are not enough
Unless they tap Living Water
A tree will dry and die
Standing only as a monument
To what once was before
Then decay, death and entropy
And a return to the dust
Deep roots gain nothing
Without the Water of Life

. . . better the green sapling than the hulking hollow trunk . . .

tree of life Jesus
