Big Sur

I stood quiet, entranced in sanctified awed hush
First time I saw, such sweeping majesty so raw
Big Sur, I collapsed in heart panting, Big Sur
My breath taken, utterly whisked away
I've been young and old in Big Sur, yea

I have traveled the states by car, thumb, freight and train
Yet never bowed as I do, to Big Sur in rain
Low sweeping sigh filled bow do I bid
In tribute to glory, fired upon earth
I weep at the ocean, such power to behold

As she hugs the cliff and lover of old
She crashes and dances roars as she cries
In again out again I get lost in her sighs
Big Sur, no never, wherever I've been
Seen anything like Big Sur

I've know New England in intimacy yes
The desert like a stallion, have I inhaled her best
I've seen all the coastlines, far as they roam,
But when old, now one calls me, yes, ancient and old
Big Sur...

Big Sur is fantastic, isn't it. Many ancient Indian ruins there too. Nicely done.

The first three lines of the last stanza are great. But poor Big Sur, ...?

I fear the tranquil water of thy soul..untroubled warm inviting...but with the depth...that is to me....unfarthomed and unknown....invade the fitful turmoil of my dreams......until I awake....
