of IRON in ROCK...
Certain truths we experience like iron pins anchored
in the sheer rock of a mountain face.
They enable traversing of life; linked
with others by a multi-stranded cord.
These soundly embedded nails were placed by another
who looked across the years and saw our need.
We reckon from these points of support;
and thus reach the high places.
