The words "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death" from the Psalm 23:4 spring to mind, but I think the imagery can be traced more distinctly to Hebrews 13:5 "I will never leave you nor forsake you." . The stages of imagery towards the sea, leaving the land is what supports that idea.

Good exercise in metaphor, simile, descriptive language.
Wow! This is a good picture- in writing-of a valley. For me it was refreshing.

It looks like someone had a lot of fun making up metaphors on this one! It's almost like lying down and gazing at clouds, then imagining what their shapes represent. May your talent continue to bring you delight!
You have some good descriptive phrases there. If I were you I'd realign them into a poem. This would work better since there's no story plot. Keep writing.
