Wonderful!!! - Poem by Harriet Kvingedal

Emotions Soar!...
So wonderfully majestic is God's feat --
This endless Ocean:
Wave after wave coming in
Then marching in retreat to repeat
Mesmerizing in its healing to the soul
Forgetful of all else but its parading power,
Smashing!...a beautiful, gushing, heaping slapping! --
A superb, mammoth theatrical show
Ever changing...never ending...
Rocks -- a refractory foe in its constant turbulent fray,
Defying the demanding thrust of petulant stroking --
One pitted against the other,
Yet seeming a consensual love competition
In a clamorous, hilarious winning joy --
Hours of watching...this triumphant roar.
Wonder!..."full" of wonder!...Wonderful!!!
Psalms 96:11
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth
be glad; let the sea roar, and the fullness thereof.
