Treasure Island

Ana Monnar

(March 6,1954)


California's crashing waves
Foaming water flowing in the caves
Hovering beachcombers on their surfboards
Balancing for the big reward
Gourmet foods, phenomenal sights
Reaching out for phenomenal flights
Cities named after Saints and Angels
Los Angeles, Santa Monica,
Santa Barbara, Santa Ana,
San Francisco, San Diego, San Rafael,
San Jose, Santa Maria, just to mention a few
After a long day, you will appreciate the stew
Diversity in cultures
Just stay away from the vultures
Assortment in geographical features
Watching exciting parades from the bleachers
Experience and explore the exquisiteness
Getting away from the daily stress

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
