Profound Peace

 Beyond the stillness of sand
        Stretched out for miles
        Alongside gentle ocean waves
        In the early hours of morning.

Beyond the quiet of calm waters

        Tucked far away
        In remote mountain glen,
        Far from the touch of man.

Beyond the serenity of silence

        Felt only in
        Pre dawn hours of daylight,
        Just before sleep has fled completely.

Beyond the absence of sorrow,

        The peace that comes
        Through reconciliation with God.
        Pure. Pervasive. Profound.
