The Ocean

The ocean is the most mystical part of nature for me.
It contains more secrets in its depths,
more knowledge in its soul,
than a mere mortal man can ever hope to experience in ten lifetimes.
It is to me the very essence of eternity,
for how can it ever die?
The tides ebb and flow in a perpetual cycle,
peacefully coming in and gradually going back out.
There is nothing so serene,
nothing so restive,
nothing so unruly,
as the sea,
when its waves roar and bellow,
when the breakers incessantly beat themselves against the beach.
The ocean,
where life began,
where all life may cease to exist,
not dying but returning to everlasting freedom.
