Was it Balboa? LaJolla in the 50's


Hot, muggy; it’s LA in the dusty days
Freeways everywhere
Down to La Jolla or is It Balboa?
White wood, planked piers, neat.
A beachy salt water breeze at last
Salt water smells overshadow the fish-
Looking down through an unseen world
under its blue-green cover.

A Glass bottom life.
Where was today during all those years?
Where was now back then?

Coney Island: Thunderbolt!!

Why am I stuck on the brink again?
Can you explain this to me?

I go to my yoga and practice my zen,
I juice! I reduce! I swallow green tea!

Where are the screams and the AHHHHs and the OHHs,
The ups and the downs; what happened to those?

Ok Ok.

I'll just Take One More Ride !!

Coney Island, June 15

One sky looking down with clouds missing,
Spirit winds blowing in the empty spaces,
No hiding behind, no holding back, no letting be.
Listening for old sounds in the waters,
barely hearing the here and now,
Cutting away at the stains of memory.
