Syndic No.38 ~ To Peace

To Peace

Written & Narrated By Southern California Poet Dean Okamura

Loud music in the cafe
reminds me of fog blocked views
of Catalina Island from Golden Cove.


The music covers my ears.
The fog blinds my eyes.
Such are the distractions of my life.


My chosen path leads me
through places which disrupt my peace
and fight to diminish the stature of my spirit.


In time, I wander away
and the fog becomes my friend
with its cousins, wind and rain.


To walk along the bluffs
in nature’s endless flow
till calmness reigns within,
a pleasant
to peace.
