Indeed, It Was Good

“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good."
 Genesis 1, 31

Waves that swell and crash to the shore,
tell  more of a tale than they told before.

Seashells that once glinted pearly white,
have a crimson tint in the bright sunlight.

The pelican struggles to stretch out her wings,
and  beachgoers wonder what the future will bring.

Scenes like these play out along the shore
as millions of gallons of crude oil pour.

What some had considered their own paradise,
they now are calling a toxic waste site.

Oh people of God, I beg you to pray
and continue it on by night and by day,

That we do what we can and do what we should,
for what the Lord gave us was, indeed, very good.
