Grace and Peace to you.
In those days and at that time
I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David;
and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.
From your heart’s dry clay a green sprig rises,
life-giving, wealthy with buds
of fruit to come.
Your doubt is too small
to keep the Holy One
from breaking forth.
A tree whose leaves are for the healing of the nations.
What, that it should grow out from you!
What, that you did not notice!
Maybe what you know as pain
is the swelling
of this strange, small, greening branch.
