Cornerstone - the Christ

Home in the elements of nature - spring mosses, dashing sleet, stormy nights
Block of stone, enduring, hidden, unearthed, unturned
Discovered then as though pried from its foundation of granite, paraded heralded in honor

Choice to surrender, rage to call out
A plea for rescue 
The Stone - silently acquiescent 

Could not the Mountain have prevailed
Come down on the masons zealously selecting, then discarding, that which they considered theirs
The Mountain - silently acquiescent 

The Stone was moved yet remained unmoved 
Profound in its makeup - deceiving in its compliancy
Yielding, knowing of its power to balance the world, the universe, its destiny as Cornerstone

Matthew 21:42  Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the scriptures; 'The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord's doing, and it is amazing in our eyes'?
