Three short poems about the magnificence of the beach and ocean
"Sunrise Prayer at the Ocean"

The magnificence of sunrise
at the ocean gives pause to
the realization of our insignificance
while, simultaneously,
making our worth
in God’s eyes

Thank you, Lord, for allowing me
to witness one of your miracles
of creation
and giving me
the insight and knowledge
to realize
how great You are.

"Ocean Waves"

Like war horses in battle
the waves gather strength
before crashing to shore.

Once the battle is won,
the waves slowly retreat
leaving the dead upon the shore.

Commanded by the moon,
waves are like platoons
rushing in then rolling out.

With their white helmets,
they announce their presence
with a majestic roar.

One can never grow weary
of watching the battles
of the waves.

"Beach Sand"

Broken down quartz rocks and shells
wash up on beaches,
becoming the sand between toes.

Tiny sparkles of fragments
glow with luminosity,
like miniscule scattered diamonds.

Beach sand beautifully cradles
the shells of once living sea creatures
in a final resting place.
