A study in contradictions

Psalm 29: One God, gloried by gods

Breaking thunder. Powerful and splendid,
breaking the cedars of Lebanon,
breaking them down, bringing them joy,
the joy of a child at play.
Stricken lightning. Strong oaks writhe;
the all too solid tree-flesh melts away,
and all cry, “Glory!”
Presiding over chaos, the LORD offers peace.
