a thing of beauty is a joy forever

July 10, 2012

i am at home in monterey this week.

this homecoming opens my eyes anew each and every time.

there is a stark contrast between the mountains of colorado

and this lovely bay etched into california’s central coast.

i could tell you about the layers of blue between sea and sky,

the delicate life forms that ride the tides in and out each day.

i could describe the flood of color that drenches the landscape

when clouds give way to sun,

and list the minute details of sea creatures and plants unique to this region.

i would rather show you.

i never tire of this homecoming,

of the place and family that cradle some soft and vulnerable part of my soul in their embrace.

they are my joy forever.
