Complexity and Perspective

In nature’s pool, away from the moon jellyfish, those rose tinted wonders of illuminated buoyancy, my ankles avoid the terror of tentacles where a perfect CocoCay day, would not be, to be stung. In nature’s pool, absorbing the sun’s zeal and sighting seagulls above the waterline. I see, with my itty body immersed in manifold drops - the sea and sky glide overhead in camouflaged wings of turquoise. Oh God! Complexity and perspective, latitude and longitude - yes, God is that specific - shows up where we are. This poet’s grappling with weak words. Oh God! Your glory swims all around, flies over me…I jump with joy. 9/23/2022

Never been and don’t want to, but perhaps when you live by the sea it is inevitable. Hugs ~ Kim

Nature has its beauty, both in the water and the sky, each has its dangers, but we see God's glory in all things, Very nicely penned Kim, watch those ankles!
