Oceanic Question

Brother
Tell me
Please
When you're out there
In the vast ocean
And you, big as you are,
Feel puny while a dignified
Whale shark
Glides silently by above you
Or when everything is still
And you notice
Those tiny jellyfish
Perfect in their intricacy
Propelling their
Graceful way
Upwards
Their superfine tentacles
Flowing in unified waves
As their movement pulses through their
Little clear bodies
Do you not see
The Great Mind
And Great Heart
Behind it all?

I wonder, Laurie, did you see the picture first and then write? Or vice versa? Either way the point of view from in the ocean water is for me an original take on the theme of Psalm 19–the heaven’s are telling the glory of God—and Walt Whitman’s passage from Song of Myself—a mouse is miracle enough to stagger sextillions of infidels. I enjoyed this. -Glen
Wonderful, so many see and acknowledge design but insist that all of this started from nothing, that matter decided on its on to make an appearance and developed into incredible life form after life form
