At ten thirty pm, I was sitting on the beach.
It was dark, no moon, but stars were shining.
I listened to the sound of the waves,
I looked at the waves in scanty light,
I could hear the peace in the air,
I could see the peace in the sea,
I could feel it in my heart and
my soul, the most peaceful part of me
came right to the surface of my being.
It remained there for a long time,
before slowly withdrawing
to its own deep depths.
Oh, my God,
let my soul come back to the surface
and let it be there for ever.
