Water - Poem by chantelle ribeiro

It gives life
It cleanses
Like tears do to the soul
I think of the ocean
Its awesome power
yet gently lapping at the shore
bringing gifts from deep within
a perfectly formed shell
A message in a bottle
A love letter still intact
A tragic end
But when the sun peaks over the horizon
And dolphins play tag with the waves
I smile as the breeze gently caresses my cheek
Aware of its mystery
its deadliness and liveliness
Its beauty and mysteriousness
And I thank God to be witness
to the beauty laid bare
A banquet of breathtaking moments
That He chose with me to share
