On a Shore

Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.
On a shore, there is a bounty of life.
The landscape reveals the world’s mysteries.
The friends of God continuously visit the shore.
They respect it as the ancient source of life.

A beautiful ocean embraces the beach.
A soft breeze stirs its waters.
The shore gathers love from the wind.

I have been here before.
I know the beach is eternal.
The divine sea provides hope.
When I am there, I pray for a life of peace.
