An Hour With You

 


THE SEA

THE WAVES RUSH IN AND BRING DEBRIS

OF ALL THE USED UP REMNANT OF THE SEA

CHILDREN PLAY IN VIEW OF WATCHFUL EYES

WHILE BIRD OF PREY FILL THE CLEAR BLUE SKIES


THE BREAKS IN THE SURF ROAR UP TO SHORE

AS SURFERS IN THEIR SUITS CLING TO THEIR BOARDS

HEAVY BREEZES FILL THE AIR, STIRRING UP THE SMELLS

WHILE OUT IN THE DEEP BLUE, CURRENTS SWELL

SEAGULLS CALLING OUT FOR MATE AND FOOD,

GLIDE ROUND AND ROUND ON PIER POST STOOD

WAITING FOR A SCRAP OF AN UNWANTED CATCH

ALWAYS HAPPY TO GET EITHER THIS OR THAT

OH WHAT A MYSTICAL WONDER OF CREATION

THE SKY AND BLUE SEA LACK SEPARATION

THEY BLEND TOGETHER LIKE ON A CANVAS

WITH ARTIST STROKES TO ITS ADVANTAGE

HOW AWESOME THAT IT DIDN'T EVOLVE

IT WAS MADE BY GOD MYSTERY SOLVED

THE EARTH SCOOPED OUT, FILLED WITH WATER

AND LIFE ABOUNDS BENEATH ITS SWALLOW

TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR ALL HE HAS DONE

TO MAKE SUCH A BEAUTY OF WATER AND SUN

AND PLACE MAN HERE TO THRIVE AND ABSORB

THE WONDERS OF STANDING ON THE SEA SHORE

GENESIS 1:10 AND GOD CALLED THE DRY LAND

EARTH; AND THE GATHERING TOGETHER OF

WATERS CALLED THE SEAS, AND GOD SAW

THAT IT WAS GOOD
