Those in the Boat by Raymond A. Foss
Before their shouts of praise
confession he was the Son of God
What were they thinking, those in the boat?
disciples gripped by the wind, fear, huddled
in the rocking boat, buffeted by the wind, the seas
ghost walking, coming toward them on the waves
Peter climbing, stepping out of the boat
walking away, out onto the sea
Sinking, falling, into the waves
Pulled up, walking again, with the Lord;
back to the boat, walking on water.
What must they have thought!
