You could turn this into a song - reads like a lyric.
Great way to capture an old testament account... flows beautifully... well done!
This felt like a story that I just had to know what was coming next. It also sounded like a song within me as I read. Excellent poem and artfully done.
Singing along here with you delightful, God-honoring poem.
This was perfectly written and actually reminds me of a children's book my kids have on the story of Jonah. This would be beautiful illustrated in the same way. It's one of my daughter's favorite books.

I've always loved that story. My favorite stanze is, "From heaven, streaked a ball of fire! -- The people shrieked in fright. -- It burnt the bull, the wood, the stones, -- And water within sight." You, very eloquently, put this into poetry! Your title is the perfect summation!
