Ecstasy and grief

O Lord my God, how great you are (Psalm 104:1; NLT).

Worship the Lord in all his holy splendour (1 Chronicles 16:29; NLT).


Gulls and their shadows
Keeping pace with me,
As we ride the gale

Blue sky;
White swells splitting apart
On shingle;
Spray strikes,
Making us scream.

Such energy, power and beauty
All at once!
Ecstasy and grief
Collide without warning
In my soul.

O Lord my God,
How great you are!
I worship your holy splendour,
Lost for words.
