Beauty is where you find it. . . just look! Sometimes LA overwhelms me, but my dog walks bring me joy.


 

A California Morning

 

I saw the mustard plants waist high,

And a burst of golden poppy flowers.

The bounty made my heart lurch,

Seeing such horizontal, fragile towers.

 

The cry of a quail quivered through the air.

Hatchlings marched in a precarious row.

The mother strutted as mothers will,

Pride and joy bobbing to and fro.

 

A fresh breeze scattered essence of lilacs,

The bush a chapel of luxurious scent.

Spring in the air, in the sights, in the sounds,

A morning walk, time well spent.
