18 years ago, during my first semester of graduate school, this beautiful poem flew into my head while driving through the university parking lot. It filled my entire being with light. I remember the sun was setting and the parking lot was quiet. I pulled over to jot it down. It’s a moment I’ll never forget.
Around the same time, I began finger-painting with acrylics in my journal, and this was one of my first efforts. A few years later, I integrated the art and writing into a postcard which has been shared with thousands of people.
The God is an Ocean poem continues to inspire me and has been quite lively in my consciousness lately. I hope it brings you as much joy as it brings me. Please share it with anyone you feel to.
