Morning at the Beach

WP DSC_0639-EditA beach on Tybee Island, Savannah, Georgia. Languidly greeting the morning sun. The morning paper leaving traces of newsprint on my fingers. Need to go up to the shack for another cup of coffee soon.

Both of these photos were taken on a rainy, overcast early morning at fields near Mt. Vernon, Washington.

The Image of a Tulip

The perennials
rising so quickly
wondering how
they grow so fast
The image of a tulip,
of a crocus, a daffodil
must be in the heart of each cell
coming from the earth
rising so well

In mere moments
growing so quickly
rising from the winter
rising to the sun
from the earth
to the warmth
of the new day

Thy sea, O God, so great,
My boat so small.
It cannot be that any happy fate
Will me befall
Save as Thy goodness opens paths for me
Through the consuming vastness of the sea.

Thy winds, O God, so strong,
So slight my sail.
How could I curb and bit them on the long
And saltry trail,
Unless Thy love were mightier than the wrath
Of all the tempests that beset my path?

Thy world, O God, so fierce,
And I so frail.
Yet, though its arrows threaten oft to pierce
My fragile mail,
Cities of refuge rise where dangers cease,
Sweet silences abound, and all is peace.
