Here Now with God - No Retreat 

Beach combing on the Waikanae foreshore,
a summers day.
A shell unbroken caught my eye, 
the fish within it gone.
It was not coming back.
I stopped, picked it up.
Colours, texture, shape,

Between the breaking waves
silence pervades.
A pause in the tossing melodies of life.
Feel the rhythm of silence,
enter into the beautiful mystery of this moment.
Enjoy the silence that exists between ocean's notes.
No retreat into my shell,
no jaded emotions,
no jagged edges.
Be still here 
in the presence of the living God.
