Tidal Grace

Streams, sourced in distant fields and hills
Join with others, turning to become
A seething river, racing forward
To tranquil sea and bottomless ocean

Depths call out, inviting immersion
Deep cleansing inner incisions
Made to a soul, now restored, released
Maintained to refocus on reality

First waiting, watching, resting in waters,
In safety surrounded with Son soaked
Rays sourcing life into pale skin
Planting joy in peace and calm

And as surface lies almost still
Ripples of anticipation begin to spread
The Spirit who takes
stillness into storms
And waves goodbye to quiet days
And waves goodbye to quiet days
And waves goodbye to days wasted
Welcoming purposeful freedom
To invite others, through actions,
And words, and emotions,
To let the tidal wave of grace
Begin in them the change of tide
This world so desperately needs
