The Ocean's Song - (Poem)

Updated on August 18, 2014

Today I sat in the sand and

Gazed out at the ocean,

Watching the ebb and flow

Listening to the rolling sounds it echoed,

Singing its song!

As it curled the waters to shore

In a white overture mingled with the ocean’s hues,

Pushing it towards the powdery shoreline

Strong and robust did the ocean sing to me,

As a contralto with depth which pierces and penetrates

A song I have never heard before,

Don’t know whether I have ever listened as I did today

Oh! What calm and peace,

The ocean’s song!

It had a melody all of its own as does all of creation

Distinct and significant was the ocean’s song,

I remember just staring

Astounded by the magnificence of the clouds,

Joining in and adding chords to this symphony of beauty

Seeming to touch the ocean,

Layered in tiers of white and blue

I could hear my spirit within me

Rehearsing praises that my soul longed to shout

Declare the glory of God resonate in oneness,

Sing a duet with the rolling waters

Treasure the moment and take it with you,

As a memory you can replay on the screen of your mind

It is indeed precious and captivating,

The song of the ocean is another display of God’s majesty

To absolutely comprehend the Creator would be,

Likened to taking this ocean and putting it in a tea cup

It can’t be done because He is infinite,

We are finite!

Appreciating the brilliance that He is

I would consider that wisdom.

The name of the Ocean that sang this song to me we call it the Atlantic

      Hi again word55. It was astounding. One thing I have come to realize is that all of nature sings and prophesies of the glory of the Creator in its own way. You can sit and look out at the ocean and it will amaze you. It will speak the Word to your heart....Be still and know that I am God. Thanks for reading and commenting. We writers have to encourage each other. You are always an encouragement.
