Peace

The sun rises over turbulent waters
Far from shore where no man sees
Waves reaching up in an attempt to touch
Only to crash down spraying vehemently
Over dolphin and seal frolicking with ardor
And light brings all together in unity
All is calm
All is bright

dVerse prompt…write a poem using symbolism.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

  1. Wonderful, Mary. Crashing waves offer many layers of symbolism. They used to visit me in dreams when I had a high stress job. Ugh.

    Even with those crashing waves way out there all is calm and all is bright.

    I can feel the strain of the waves stretching to reach the sunlight on to come crashing back down.
    Good line!

  6. I can almost see how the crashing waves becomes calm (or looks calm) with distance… That light shining is hope.

    I always associate crashing waves with passion. Guess it could just as easily be turmoil. All in the hands, and head of the reader, i suppose.
