Timaru Coast Walk

Have you ever been to a sand bar

Listening, watching wavelets caress the sandy shore?

I have –

And heard the gentle voice of God.


Dashing Rocks Timaru

Heard the roar of waves

Venting their wrath upon rocky shores?

I have –

and heard the voice of an angry God.

Remember the money changers

Defiling the holy temple?

So, beware and

Listen to the sea.
