We went down to the beach late one day, and found the sun was punching tiny holes in the rumbling cotton clouds. The effect was dazzling with infinite golden shafts, rays of sunlight, fanning out across the rolling waves. It seemed that the light once through was trapped to bounce forever between ocean and cloud, leaving us a shimmering mirror of lights beauty, reflecting endlessly back to itself. An infinite reflection on the silver sea.
Looking away towards our right the light was softer, muffled and absorbed by the gentlest looking storm clouds. They were gathering with barely a whisper of wind, and with such infinite patience that we hardly noticed. Everything seemed so still, even the waves were sleepy, slowly licking the soft sand with just a sigh. The light was butter soft, and the horizon rolled away into the timeless distance. It was as though infinity had filled the space and slowed down time to a gentle trickle. An infinite moment of perfect beauty at the edge of the endless sea.
Then, before our eyes, as the sun continued his daily fall towards the horizon, the clouds thickened enough to change. The sky was divided between left and right, and in that liminal space where the two edges meet, beauty fell from the sky. Dark clouds created soft rain over the sea, shrouding the horizon in mysterious infinity, hiding the edges of the earth. In a moment of utter brilliance the sunlight was fractured into all its parts, and a rainbow tumbled out over the waves. It’s magical beauty was reflected from the still water of the sea, which held her breath in wonder. The infinite hope of life was bringing beauty and change into our world, and it was all happening right before our eyes. The sun and the sea had woven their endless, timeless spell of healing, and in the unweaving of the light, beauty had fallen into the world.
