TITLE: Walking the Waves

It grows and grows
coming nearer, nearer,
energy rises, the wave tips curl,
reaching up, the spray leaps heavenward,
and then it tucks, and
bends its knees
and ripples over
froth, foam white,
and still it runs
ripples, rivulets
slipping, sliding
to the shore,
then its burden
all discharged,
quietly, it is
no more

watching the arching pulse
a board and surfer crouching low
waiting for the perfect time,
it comes, just so, he throws his weight,
and fused with mighty strength without,
propelled by power beyond his frame

and then
he rises deft
and sure, to dance
across the skimming surge
he licks the salt, and thrills
to fly, in and out
the tunnel
shift

and on his face, a glimpse
of joy, hes seen
beyond
the water drop
hes heard the laugh
of angel voice
delighting in
such human fun

Does He who by His grand design
holds all within its perfect place,
take joy to see man
ride his waves,
and dance across
the leaping foam?

I think He does
He sees our "wow!",
And He is glad!
Wow, what a Dad!

What a refreshing poem. I loved it. Thanks for sharing.

I enjoyed your opening of this free verse poem (describing a wave). This had the ebb and flow poetic motion of the ocean. You have some great word choices too, "across the skimming surge he licks the salt" and "propelled by power beyond his frame." Nice work!

Excellent descriptions and actually refreshing. I think I even did see God smile as He watched one of His creations, ride that wave!
