Amazing Moments of Hope and Faith
Leokadia Durmaj, Australia and Robert Hewett Sr., United States
Looking out across the ocean,
She wonders where her love could be,
She wishes he was here with her,
She watches the sun merge with the dark blue water
Bright red, like a ball on fire,
The sky darkens from blue to grey.
There are sailing boats still out on the water
Bobbing up and down across the waves,
A cool breeze is blowing softly,
She succumbs to the feeling.
Racing his Range Rover down a dusty Outback road
Storm brewing off to his left
Dangerous washout ahead,
“Pound pistons, engine roar, don’t falter!”
Lightning and dark clouds closing in on him.
“Come on Rover, throw that dust high
I wish you had wings and we could fly.”
Thunder and lightning, wind and rain,
Are in his eyesight just upstream,
Soon a wall of water two stories high
Will come down the washout to claim him.
She is not aware of the danger he faces,
She watches the sunset disappear into the ocean,
The dazzling sunset envelops her.
As the sky darkens the water glistens,
The light is dancing upon each wave,
she is mesmerized by the beauty displayed.
Waves are tumbling over each other,
A feeling of peacefulness overcomes her
She surrenders her heart and soul.
He is in the deadly washout; the road is rough.
The wind, the rain, the lightning, all around him,
A wall of water in his sight rushing downstream.
“My darling pray for me, I need Divine intervention,
the Rover and I are facing absolute devastation.”
The wall of roaring water is very near him,
He sees the rise in the road ahead.
“Climb Rover, climb that bank.
We are out of the gulch, Sydney is on our horizon .”
