Immersed in God

Watching a marvelous film
about the ocean depths
I felt a huge desire
to help the fish
understand how lucky they are
to live immersed
in so much splendour.
Imagine then my thirst
to cry to men, my brothers,
that we live immersed – coming and going,
swimming to and fro –
not in the oceans
but in God himself.
