Big Sur




High Tide

there are few places

in the world

that are pure magic

full of vast strange wildness

that can co exist

at the edge of the

urban world

Big Sur is one of those places

that i can feel in my bones

makes my head spin

and drifts into mind

thru dreams

when i leave




the way to Big Sur

the ocean

the oxygen

and the animals

all incite a sensory riot

for an artist who lives

in a dry ocean in new mexico

but m not surprised

that Henry Miller

chose to live here

as well as many other artist

the drive along highway 1

takes my breath away

the views are spectacular

and better than any photo youve seen

and the immensity of the

life force in the water

is so mysterious

to a desert dweller

that it feels like an

unexplored planet

California has many different cultures

as usual

i prefer the ones away from

city living

closer to the Ocean

and the animals who

inhabit it

where i can see things

with less noise and distraction

taking in the smells sights and sounds

that can shape a new painting

inform a new write

or perhaps just make

for a beautiful day

on our small blue

marble in the cosmos
















the answer to EVERYTHING
