The Cove – Muscat, Oman


Jagged outlines, sheer striations,

Ochre, black and white.

Gentle waves lapping delicately,

Nature‘s Jewels in sight.

Vestiges of human waste,

Washed up on the Shore,

Tear the heart, burn the eyes. .  .

Like a suppurating sore.

But ~ as the sun goes lower,

Magnificent sentry’s frame our sight,

Our thoughts are clear,  

Our souls at rest,

As the last eagles take flight.

As we sit and ponder on Life’s rare gifts

And drink in the Beauty of this Land,

We stop to feel at One with God

And His Wondrous Healing Hand.

(Muscat 05/02/09)

[Pictures and poem by me on an idyllic week-end getaway, camping equipment and supplies dropped off by boat, no roads nor infrastructure –  Paradise!]
