Eternal Silence

Immersed in the eternal silence

Surrounded by the sounds of the ocean

The sun slowly moves up on the horizon

I feel its warmth upon my face.

“Feel the breeze!” I remind myself

“And the freshness of the water,

And the softness of the sand.”

The smooth pebble smiles and wakes me up from my dreams

“Smoothness comes with time,” I say to myself

I breathe deeply and mindfully

I smile

I am here

You are here

We are here
