The Sea On Christmas Eve 2012 - Poem by Berniece Penner

Desolate on a winter night
The sea roars on
I never expected this sight
The boardwalk gone.

Naked sentinels of stone
Beside the sea.
Rough pillars bereft and alone
Speak to me:

The winds of God move as He wills.
Sands shift and change
The ocean's waves He moves, He stills;
The Rock remains.

(1/6/12 Rockaway Beach)
