~ Big Sur ~

Cliffside
falling waters
down to soft golden
sands. Rocky shorelines
of foggy mystical strands.
Redwoods so tall they blot
out the sky, heavenly coves where
seagulls cry, ancient cypress trees stretch
their arms out to sea, it is my hope, someday
you’ll come there with me ~ bonnie j. flach ©

~ Cimarron ~ 
Past
plains
westward 
into the land 
of setting sun rose
mountains rocky from
high desert to coastal bluffs,
home of the cimarron, who stands
proud in his nautilus-shaped horns.
Long ago, once in Big Sur in early morning
mist, I saw one jump just past my car, which
was good for his sake and mine, I was relieved
he made it over those hairpin curves and his beautiful
image is still implanted in my mind ~ bjf ©

~ Captured Moments In Time ~
In my dreams soft warm nights
murmurs memory’s song
under silver starlight
Captured moments in time
Songs of wooded dark hills
under night sky’s eclipsed moon
where the waterfall spills
Captured moments in time
Songs of coastal cliffs tall
under night sky’s eclipsed moon
where spills the waterfall
Captured moments in time
Under silver starlight
murmurs memory’s song
In my dreams soft warm nights
Captured moments in time
