San Simeon's Summers Song

The ocean is your orchestra
along with the sultry summer breeze
marches with the mountains
harmonizes with the trees
a lonesome bird sings his song
and waits for others to chime along
a vibrant star shines high and bright
dances a tango with morning light
Pinks and purples breathtaking blush
"thank you God" you did not rush
Serenade of silence is the peace out here
the sounds of busy have not not appeared
Serenity found in treasured morning sun
A brand new day has just begun.

I love to wake up early and sit and mediate in silence before the day begins. This was a morning gift while on vacation heading to San Simeon California.
