[Written for the Sentinel]

A Wider View

No longer seek I for some peak in DarienWhereon to stand and view a wide expanse,For my heart knows an ocean deeply blue,Far broader, deeper than the western seaBalboa gazed upon, and seeing itSo still and calm,Called it the Pacific.

So sunny and serene its waters lie,Mirroring heaven's blue; while all night longThe everlasting stars look down to viewTheir burnished loveliness in its clear depths.I stand and gaze upon this wide domain,So still and calm,This wondrous sea of Truth.

We'd love to hear from you!
