Return to Monterey


Twenty-two ticks gone by
Wondering till this year why
I would come back to nothingness
A joy to visit none the less

The sandy beach where I once called
Home
Just a simple release
From the military madness

They tore down my base
Where I was training for a war
Walking for peace
Seemed such a waste

There's a college now there
What is to be learned?
Where will the next brain come from?
Should I care?

Just a beach I called
Home
Where I did run free
Just for a brief moment in time
In my boyish
History

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
