Eye of the storm

He lies Head cushioned Sleeping midst the uproar Of the surrounding storm. Lightening forks the sky Split-second flashes Illuminating driving rain Thunder crashing ever closer. At rest amid the cacophony At peace, not fearing, He who created the components And stills them at his word. I seek him out Drawing close to Him Needing his warmth His heartbeat's reassurance That in the eye of the storm He rests, he remains, He reigns.

The physical images are amazing, Anne, but even more awesome is the relationship you draw to God being in 'the eye of the storm." You certainly have a talent for imagery and use a stimulating vocabulary to bring these images to life. Excellent writing! Love, Carolyn
