Chapter 7 – The Ark’s Solemn Voyage
In silence profound, the world wrapped in dread,
Noah’s heart braced for the tumult ahead.
With animals paired, in the ark’s massive frame,
They waited as darkness and storm clouds became.
The heavens wept tears that drowned the vast earth,
A deluge that echoed creation’s rebirth.
For forty days and nights, relentless and wild,
The rain cascaded, an unrestrained tide.
Within the ark’s sanctuary, afloat,
Noah and kin, their destiny wrote.
A world submerged beneath a watery shroud,
Their hearts beat in rhythm, faith unbowed.
The ark sailed in solitude’s endless sea,
As far as the eye could behold, decree.
Invisible hands guided, shielded, and cared,
As the tempest raged and the water’s edge bared.
Creatures within, a living tapestry,
Together embraced in God’s embassy.
A menagerie of Earth’s life they bore,
In the ark’s sacred vessel, adrift and sore.
Anxieties mingled, faith’s beacon held high,
In the ark’s hallowed haven, beneath the dark sky.
With each passing day, the waters grew calm,
A world transformed by nature’s soothing balm.
Until, at the peak of the flood’s grand spree,
The ark found its rest on Mount Ararat’s knee.
Noah gazed upon a world reborn and vast,
The tumult now over, a chapter surpassed.
With hope in his heart, a promise up high,
Noah set forth to replenish the sky.
In the ark’s sacred voyage, a tale profound,
Of faith, renewal, on hallowed ground.
The ark’s solemn voyage, a journey untold,
A testament to faith, in history’s fold.
From darkness to light, through storm and strife,
God’s promise emerged, a testament of life.
