To water the earth (Isaiah’s song).

the one true story rained down
upon the planet’s cracking skin
its chapters muddying the dust
soaking old and arid rumors
of bygone riverbeds

over time the words sank resolutely 
into their sedimentary plots
and as they decomposed into letters
the long-forgotten stones
were drenched with meaning

and one day they grew and collided
mighty steeples rending desert plains
discovering their unsilenced voices
singing the new-remembered hymns
echo unto echo
