Hard fought

tree silhouette at sunset

Burnt umber cockleshells capture the roaring ocean
Relentlessly churning in slow motion
A tug of war between planet and moon

Burbling brine, seabirds cawing
Whispering winds, stars falling
A mighty fortress built upon a sand dune

Grappling against the divine
Heaven and ocean intertwine
Divergent devotion, to all I surrender

Diving into the fathomless deep
Close my eyes for eternal sleep
Embracing the sea in all its splendor

Soaring high into the celestial sphere
Breaking my bonds to earth without fear
I touch the Spirit Omniscient

Combatants struggle under a midnight sun
The fearsome battle is done
Grace is sufficient
