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