A hint of why

 A hint of why                                                                                    

The Ocean has come again ...
to tell us we are not adrift;

more like a river, running towards
and away, of urgency and purpose;

the Ocean has come again ...
to tell us we are not islands –

embracing, sighs and gazes,
the wiping away of tears.

The Ocean, labyrinths
of Love and endeavor,

vast, breathless depths,
come again
  
to tell us we have no shore,
strongest evidence to the contrary;

no beginning nor end; enemies
and companions – our very own Self.

The Ocean has come again ...
to tell us our loneliness

is but a bitter-tinged drop
in the immeasurable loneliness of God.

O child of God, such an import offers a hint
of why Meher lived in silence.

(from A Jewel in the Dust)
