(August 15 is the feast of the Assumption, a day on which some say there's a special blessing in the ocean's waters...)
How long did it take you, Lord,
to smooth these stones in the wash of waves,
in the turning tides?
How many years to polish to a sheen
the glistening lustrous beauty
of this seashore trove?
Take not so long with waves of grace
to smooth away rough edges on my heart
and burnish bright what's dull within my soul...
to take me out to sea and back to shore
and there, at last, to find my rest in you...
