in Montclair Canyon strolling and stumbling
on desiccated stones in the canyon creek
inhaling the fragrance of blossoming flowers
untiI I pass under palm fronds into an Ashram
secreted in mystery where I meditate & pray
for Peace & Love as a breeze
whispers in the trees that my spirit is
free from the world
the flesh
and the ego

Disfruta la vida loca

It’s Spring in San Diego
the stars are out tonight
and the sky sparkles
in celestial light
La Frontera lies below
In the distance where border lights
and Tijuana hills are aglow
like diamonds in the dark
