The Giver - Poem by chuck Hurley

How can you be awesome and also grand
To always give and share and have us understand
A gift that is totally given without measure
The ocean, the water; as critical to earth's treasure.

To give of itself to the air
Filling the clouds that pass and go on to share
To move with hidden motion as the stars in the sky
A gift so obvious there is no reason to ask why.

To go from one corner of the earth to another
Giving, giving to every sister and brother
The ocean must shed its loneliness on to to the shore
To reliquish and remove the contents of the ocean floor.

The energy this ocean gives and takes
Not for itself but for others sake
The strength never before presented to man
It's destiny to be available for others to understand.

God created the multiudes and the church used as a blessing
Many times the flock as so much window dressing.
