Of Storms and Oysters


Of Storms and Oysters

a day a while ago
i took out my shiny boat
to roam the High Seas

paddling i was
laughing out loud
and free
living the High Life
when the sky turned gray

clouds thickened
winds howled so loud
i couldn’t hear myself think

good thing!

my shiny boat capsized
and I lost all I owned
i felt scared
sad
lonely and unloved

where those seals I spotted ahead?
are there dolphins surfing on the waves?
i really couldn’t see
blinded by rain
i felt so cold

not ready to perish
i began to swim with zest
furious waves tossed me about
until i came to rest
and caught the glassy rays

this must be Heaven
I said
God was showing me the way

my spirit soared
my arms forged ahead
until I saw the Sun
a brightness I have never seen
then i knew i be alright

the Light outside
was deep within me too
i would survive this Storm

and here I am
writing this to prove
that all storms
give way to the sun
and pearly oysters

good thing!

of Storms and Oysters
I am building myself
a shiny new boat
