Meadows glow with California gold,
Oceans cool with heaven's silver.
Two giants spout spring's joy,
Countless tiny cups serenade their passage.
After a meditation retreat at my favorite hermitage,
this meadow on Pacific Coast Highway One
by Luciavibrating with poppies stopped my heart and car.
Hastily heisting my everready easle in place,
I was rewarded with whales spouting in the azur waters.
Talk about a plein-air painter's paradise!
