Beautiful! Wonderful comparison between the rise and fall of the seas and the nations. Well done.
I like this--your strong comparisons create a great message in this parable.
Excellently done - and so very timely! It was gripping, evocative, and powerful, as is God's glorious presence in our world today. Thank you!
What an excellent analogy. Love your last stanza.
This is a beautiful piece. The images were etched in my mind.
Beautifully descriptive with spiritual truth hidden within!
Wow... amazing work on every level. I love this. Super congrats on your Editor's Choice award!
Beautiful piece. I tend toward poems that don’t rhyme, but this felt unforced – it flowed quite well. I very much like the message. Good job.
Beautiful poem. The concepts of water and nations is brillant.

Congratulations on your win.
Glad to see this made the EC list. Well done!
Congrats on the EC. I enjoyed it VERY MUCH! For some reason, I like poetry, especially this one.
Ah....I see others also chose the same adjective I was thinking: "beautiful." This is compelling in style and message, flowing along with a rising effect. Congrats on your 3rd place!
While I don't tend to incline toward poetry w/ heavy rhyme schemes, I do think your thoughtful vocabulary usage made your poem come alive w/o sounding trite. I also appreciated your inclusion of a slant rhyme --"thought/import." Congratulations on your 3rd place!
