The ocean on a cloudy day...
Here is another bit of verse written in retreat on the beach in 2008 during that month of prayer:
The ocean is a dull and dreary gray.
The sun has hid in clouds all day,
But the beach is lovely just the same,
People walking, surfing, playing a game.
The breeze is gentle and the tide is high'
Here is close to heaven where I lie.
I remember the day now that I have found this at the back of my retreat notebook. It was not windy and there were boys playing with a frisbee and a dog who had great ability to intercept their throws and leap to catch the frisbee so it was a real "keep-away" game with the dog winning.
