Pacific, Ocean Blue: Unveiling God’s Grandeur



Majestic ocean, so sublime;
Pacific wonder, clear azure.
Ever constant, its billowing,
Unveiling God’s splendid grandeur.

Serene sunset, glory ablaze;
Radiating beams, pure allure.
Spectacular hint of Your Light;
Reminiscent warmth to reassure.

Soaring scavengers, shrill seagulls;
Pelicans chasing down waves to glide.
Mirroring glimpses of our freedom,
Mounted with wings into the sky.

Shrill scavengers

Shrill scavengers

Glancing heavenward, towering high,
Palms of stately, weather worn rings.
Waving branches, a sort once used
As welcome mats fit for a King.

Palms 2

Vast horizon, vanishing far;
Plunging fathoms, stretching so wide.
Ocean blue portrays Your greatness,
Resonates of Your loving tide.

“O LORD, how manifold are Thy works! In wisdom hast Thou made them all: the earth is full of Thy riches. So is this great and wide sea.”
Psalm 104:24, 25

I grew up in Florida along the gray Atlantic. Even though I still love the beaches in Florida, there is nothing like the shimmering blue of the Pacific. Both the poem and photos are memories of a wonderful trip my husband and I took to California this past week.

Hope you enjoy!

    Beautiful, Sue, both your poem and photographs!! I’ve never been to California, but the shimmering blue of the Pacific in your photographs reminds me of the Atlantic and Caribbean as seen from the Caribbean islands. Breathtaking!

    Sue, I was born and raised in California and my weekend home was the ocean. There is nothing like the California coastline where you can see God’s handiwork in it’s full glory. Your poem and pictures capture it so well. ~ Blessings ~
