Davenport Cliff Pacific Ocean

A Morning Walk (James Watkins) hdr not!


Waking words, swirling sweetly,

Singing in my ears-

Rolling wonders, strong and straight-

Beaconed bright and clear.


Inviting me to wander,

Down to shining shore-

Where convocating castles call,

To open ocean roar.


On the edge of dreaming,

I felt myself fall in-

Down through dangered,

Damaged doors-

Viscous, veiled, and thin.


Forces of reality-

Razored helms of hate-

Shifting, sandy, shapeless shadows,

Slipping through the gate.


Beyond the blackened border,

I gazed at gloried land-

Felt the touch of morning-

Held fast to heaven’s hand.


Poured out on the altar-

Refreshed-refueled I ran-

Head first into battle-

Possessed by present plans.


Suddenly I saw it-

Though fifty three seems late-

Fast forward towards forever now-

This dream can hardly wait.


Gathering at the seashore,

The ships by night came in,

And rested casually by the bay,

Protected, proud, and trimmed.


Persevering presences,

Provided none too late,

The moment we were waiting for,

Has finally taken place.


So let this light come forth and shine,

Confusion fading fast-

Let this hope begin to rise,

Let this morning last.


Pure and plain provision,

Coming down the line,

Cutting every corner,

Assimilating time.


Striking down each enemy,

Aroused by fear and haste.

Completely done-

A remnant run-

Compelled by boldest faith.


Sudden change is coming-

Champions will arise-

From victored fields of battle-

Free from compromise.


Balanced on the lightning edge,

Finished and refined-

Its getting near, this much is clear-

Its coming just in time.


Something big, something bold,

Beyond horizon’s floor-

Rising slowly, like the dawn-

Beckoning before.


Prepared by patient promises,

Just around the bend-

We had to wait,

But not too late,

Well worth it in the end.
