Rising from the watery mist the
grey sea church blesses the waves
and prays to the sky,
a silver carven wing,
folded in limbo,
as its sea bells peel out the
redemption of sand and stone.
Its three pillars
drawn from sea’s breath
are stained aquamarine,
and on its grey stone altar,
embraced with God’s gentle love,
nestle the souls of sea birds
home at last from their long journey
and the hazards of ocean and sky.
