Created by the Son,
glistening at the bay
God’s pelicans gliding every day
inches above the water stars
as they dance on calming waves.
Running under the piers
like diamonds sliding and twinkling,
never sinking in the water
appearing as a million eyes winking.
Obeying their creator,
building runways for pelicans inches above
the never-failing water stars peaceful as doves,
as the Pelicans quietly move
only a hands reach above.
The beauty of their graceful glide
by the pelicans at the bay,
both are God’s creations
made within seven days.
Water Stars and Pelicans
for my weary eyes to behold,
allowing my mind to relax and consume
for ages, young and old.
The combining beauty
of His divinely created gifts
of ordered things in unison
providing our hearts with a much-needed lift.
The pelicans and the water stars
both playing together each day
at the Daphne May Day Park Bay
I thank my God as I bend to pray.
For a wonderful free gift of love and peace
considering others first, myself always least
as my Savior wishes my heart to be
always finding myself in true humility with thee.
