Ocean Twilight - Poem by Justin Reamer

A collage of colours illuminates the Southern Sky,
Shades of luminescent tempera found in flames,
Red, orange, yellow, and violet compounded together,
Evoking the passion of the viewer looking on as
The Great Ball of Fire sets over the horizon line,
Its majesty pronounced as it makes its exodus,
Only to return with a promise in the morning.

The ocean waves crash against the rocks,
Washing whatever wounds man may have made,
Purifying itself as twilight off its surface.
Within its grand body, unknown civilisations exist,
With colossal fortresses invisible to the naked eye,
Housing invertebrates smaller than a human hand
And the noble fish of a vast array of colours,
Hosting every shade of the radiant rainbow,
The sign God gave to preserve all of humanity.

The sea birds fly among the crystalline clouds,
The whales singing songs of euphony as they
Each climb to the surface for a breath of air and
The dolphins jump in the midst of twilight,
The light resonating off their smooth skin as
They smile and laugh at the humans ashore,
Mocking their stoicism like children at play,
Going back into the waves to commune in peace.

As the waves calm and the sun slowly sets,
A Being appears amidst the twilight,
Extending His hands as a peace offering,
Showing His artwork as His own creation as
Nature rejoices in the midst of His presence,
Singing praises to the One named Emmanuel.
