Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

Across the Ocean

This is a new composition of a poem I wrote in 2001 after a friend that we had gotten close to stepped out of our lives.

Across the Ocean

A bed of sapphires meets the sky
As far as human eye can see;
No hint of your departure lingers,
Across the waves I see no green—

And yet I know you’re out there somewhere,
A heart that wandered far from home,
And now my heart is longing for you—
It traces every step you’ve roamed;

Content no longer to stand by,
I leap into my small canoe,
I’ll paddle to the sunset, friend,
If at the end I’ll row to you.

You REALLY have a gift with words, Ben! :-) Not only is your poetry well written, but used to beautifully convey great meanings.

God bless,

Thank you, Brianna. I just wish I had a gift with words in speech as well as on paper! But God is still working on me... :-)
