At Great Point

ISSUE:  Autumn 1987

Let the waters of heaven be gathered
into one place
. . . Genesis 1

Is this the very face
of an angry God, or simply
his instrument?
On calm mornings halos
of light hovering
over the water . . . a few
feathers on the sand
as if an angel has passed . . .
all the grace and dazzle
of power. Until,
inexplicably, the dark sea rises
on its hind legs into
a tidal wave, shearing away
even the shore
that contains it.
