Ocean waves caress the shore
herring seagulls keow and soar
palm trees sway in gentle breeze
and bathing babes–a summer’s tease.

Golden rays kiss the sand
lovers stroll hand in hand
kids fly kites along the pier
in sky so blue, so vast, so clear.

California summer Sunday
where time and worries fade away
a sparkling place I call my home
where I love to live and roam.
