Ocean Waves That Never Sleep

Ocean waves sweep the shore,
Perform a priestly undertow,
An absolution in their sleepless round,
Cleansing white sand with every swell.
I cannot walk against the Ocean’s crest
Without feeling breath of prayer
With rising, falling of the breast.
Whether it be fairest day or
Charging storm, I cannot name
In mountain or green meadow,
Sweeter unrest that blesses feet
Than ocean waves that never sleep.

  1. The ocean rhythems fill this poem…I love it! Im also really delighted to see a short, one verse poem! You are so good at packing in the ideas and expressing them in a small space! And seem to be less wordy than earlier! Which may not be everyones taste , but is mine! My total admiration!

  2. The power of the unseen God never rests…mercy. forgiveness, gracing, redeeming, saving, loving…never resting and always purifying.
    Wonderful as usual, Fred, my friend.
