SELAH

I wrote this poem for all who resist life until they finally understand that it is best to rest in Christ.

Merry Christmas!

SELAH

The blue-white moon calls
The surf answers in thunderous strength
Water reaches for the shore
Resisting sea’s command
To return to the deep

Waves charge straining to escape the ocean
Grabbing at rocks, pawing the sand
Roaring allegiance to the lunar pull
Refusing to submit to the deep
But all is futility

Selah
pause
rest
reflect

The moon gives way to dawn
Weary, submissive, the tide returns to sea
Docile water glides over the beach
To play with seaweed
And tickle children’s toes

Peaceful ripples drift on water’s surface
Reflecting the sun’s brilliant light
Sending millions of diamonds
Dancing in dizzying glory
And so it is with life

Selah
pause
rest
reflect

Dance in the sun

Linda C Apple 2005
