Tall mountains with beards of moss
Loomed on the right,
While on the left, bright sun
Glinted on an endless expanse
Of smooth sea,
Leaving only a languid wave or two,
To foam against rock cliffs.
Light blue sky embraced
The darker ocean
At the horizon.
The clouds above,
Broad scoops of gray and white,
Were loveliest of mountains,
Mirrored in the ocean’s face.
Rolling hills lounged
Between jagged rock cliffs
And behind lush green fields
Of farmers’ paradise of crops.
Large oil rigs up close
Were giant fireflies,
To the ground.
Across the highway,
Irrigation pumps spouted
Into rainbow arcs.
A host of small, multi-colored flowers
Ran in riotous profusion along the coast,
Along with occasional large blossoms
Of purple and gold.
A family of dimpled hills
Was dappled by sunshine and shadow.
The highway still farther on
Was bounded on the left
By curtains of tall eucalyptus trees
And on the right by endless rows
Of fat cabbages and fruit trees.
All this—God’s creativity and man’s ingenuity—
Blended in beautiful pictures
To be long-time remembered.
