When possibility
Permeates everything

The canyons and creeks
Haven’t changed
But you..

Find joy
On a new path
Towards greater vistas

Inspired by the view from Artist Point – Mount Diablo State Park, California. See more nature poems in the book Enchanted Bay Area

Looking back over
Everything that was
Getting over the rocks
That were harder to pass

Time is the healer
That tirelessly draws
A pattern of hope
Over life’s great expanse

Seeing the bigger picture
Beautiful with the scars
A point to be grateful..
Rocks can be north stars

Pink Gift

Inspired by a spectacular November sunrise in the Bay Area

A pink glow
Across the horizon
The precursor
For a burst of silver

Heading eastward
Into the winter
A gift of fresh hope
Wrapped in gold

When the heart needs
New inspiration
And the road takes me
Away from home

God knows
How to unveil
The unwritten psalm
In a spectacular sunrise

Abundant joy

A burst of color
Beside the freeway
Branches filled with joy
Waving on a breezy day

Fusion of purple
With captivating pink
A message for the heart
Surely written in divine ink

Angel at the Mission

At the old mission
We met, as if in a dream
And talked of places
Where we had been
Are you weary she asked
Quite so, I replied
Drink then, this water..
Gently she implied
I wept on her shoulder
And the tears all dried
My cup she filled
With more for the ride
Lovingly she waved
As I said goodbye
Her parting words..
Come back anytime

New buds

Velvet capes
of hazel green
Draped lovingly
over rolling hills
Violet starlets
like fairy-dust
New buds
of lavender
Waiting to
greet the spring
A dazzling picture
of anticipation
Painted across
the northern skyline

Sublime Valentine

A February morning in the San Francisco Bay Area – like opening a beautiful Valentine’s Card

Blue heavens
Green mountains
White streaks
Across the sky
Yellow carpets
On the foothills
Wild flowers
In the sunshine
Warming trend
For the weekend
February morning
Sublime Valentine

Sunrise over Santa Clara

Celebrating the home of Super Bowl 50 – a poem by
Samanthi Fernando, Author of California Serenade

Light swirls of clouds
Dotting the morning sky
Shafts of silver light
Pouring down from high

A silhouette of hills
Kiss the clouds around
A heavenly backdrop
For the emerging crowd

The valley comes alive
Unveiled by the sun
With an aura of hope
Another day has begun
