The gentle lap of the waves
as they rolled towards the beach
lulled me into a sense
of immense well-being.
The feeling in my chest
was akin to those intimate moments
when you are sleeping and I lay by your side
listening to you breathe.
Standing by the shore
I felt close to a great revelation,
something I would be unable
The melodic voice of the ocean
had its own rhythm,
pulsing like a beat, a heartbeat:
the heartbeat of nature.
