Jesus Calms the Storm #Poetry #Rembrandt

Rembrandt – The Storm on the Sea of Galilee (1633) – Public Domain

“Don’t you care?
We’re all going to drown!”
His face of love and concern
Looks me right in the eye
Knowing my fear
Seeing the tempest inside
He speaks
“Peace! Be still!”
In an instant, everything changed
His eyes met mine again
A greater fear arose
“Why are you so afraid?
Do you still have no faith?”

This poem is based on a passage from the Gospel of Mark in the Bible, Mark 4:35-41
