  • Cliffside
    falling waters
    down to soft golden
    sands. Rocky shorelines
    of foggy mystical strands.
    Redwoods so tall they blot
    out the sky, heavenly coves where
    seagulls cry, ancient cypress trees stretch
    their arms out to sea, it is my hope, someday
    you'll come there with me ~ bonnie j. flach (c)

    ~ Cimarron ~

    Past
    plains
    westward
    into the land
    of setting sun rose
    mountains rocky from
    high desert to coastal bluffs,
    home of the cimarron, who stands
    proud in his nautilus-shaped horns.
    Long ago, once in Big Sur in early morning
    mist, I saw one jump just past my car, which
    was good for his sake and mine, I was relieved
    he made it over those hairpin curves and his beautiful
    image is still implanted in my mind ~ bjf (c)


    ~ Captured Moments In Time ~

    In my dreams soft warm nights
    murmurs memory's song
    under golden starlight

    Captured moments in time

    Songs of wooded dark hills
    under night sky's eclipsed moon
    where the waterfall spills

    Captured moments in time

    Songs of coastal cliffs tall
    under night sky's eclipsed moon
    where spills the waterfall

    Captured moments in time

    Under golden starlight
    murmurs memory's song
    In my dreams soft warm nights

    Captured moments in time
