The cool of the ocean
and the warmth of the heavens
come together
to form a slow-moving halo
that lingers in the misty atmosphere.

A welcoming celestial sheath
that grazes over the boats below,
and continues its journey
crossing mountaintops
of green and gold.

And when the hot sun appears
in the early afternoon
over a jagged Pacific coast,
the sunlight transforms this drifting halo
into a sky of Rembrandt blue.

I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
