California

07/17/2009

verdant hills with cropped trellises
combed vineyards if irrigated locks
life on the scalp of the desert hills
of peach fuzz grazed on by bovine mammoths
in California’s curvy midsection
strutting hips point out seductive harvests
inviting a visitor to allow the eye wander
impressive cliffs lead to crashing shores
pristine beaches attract strangers to
lay half naked on her sandy bottom
or yield to the come hither call of its skimmed waves
while the everpresent heat lamp sun
bakes blondies into brownies
greeting all with a naturally delicious smile

      Thanks for the encouragement, Anthony! Let me know if you need any help with the Spanish pieces. I’ve translated a few of them, too. Good luck with your language adventure.
