Crystal Cove


Poem and photos dedicated to Crystal Cove, where I walked on the beach in the morning before going to work at UC Irvine.


I mosey and meander
on the beach at Crystal Cove,
dazzled by the brilliance
of my sparkling treasure trove.
Sequined waves unfurling
hide treasures to behold,
a cymbal-crashing symphony
of diamonds and of gold.

I hear the gemstones clacking
in splendid harmony,
as cast upon the shoreline
they reveal themselves to me.

A fracture teems with critters
encased in slimy green,
emitting tiny bubbles….
a clue to life unseen.
