Alone With Jesus...

Ocean Grove (NJ) Beach

Alone, in the morning

except for gulls, pipers

and a few fishermen far out on the jetties

I walk along the shoreline

Fringes of waves

rhythmically roll over my sandy feet

as I worship You with quiet song—

The soft ocean rumble, my accompaniment


At rose-toned dusk

I stroll along a mountain path

lush in deepening shadows

Cognizant of my serenity,

I appreciate the harmony

designed into creation by You


Cozy in my bed

in the quiet moments before slumber meets me

my pre-sleep meditation is prayerful thanks

for the blessings that surround me, and

the giving heart of You.


Maude Carolan


This poem began with an early morning stroll along

Ocean Grove Beach, vacation's end, the summer of `94.
