This is a poem that appeared years ago on a site for Morro Bay. I wrote it after visiting the quaint California town.

Morro Rock

Beneath a blue dome, above an azure sea
A volcanic prodigy stands proudly to the heavens
Caressed by the tide, encircled by a cloud of feathered hunters
Nature’s landmark beckons a sojourn for all sea-drained travelers
Its base, a dozen vessels strong; its peak, a half-score of stacked masts
Those at shore stand and marvel
The brilliance of the bay
The uncompromising grandeur and enchantment of Morro Rock

Feel free to print and use it as you please, Steven.

I'm glad it was worth reposting on this site. :)

I am going to send her a copy through email to check out...wow remember the days when life was slower and you didn't have to send an email to someone who lived in the same house as you :o) crazy huh

Pamela Barrett (booksandartpamela_barrett) | 60 comments Wonderful poem Vince, it describes Morro Rock and Morro Bay perfectly. That's where I go on my day off, there and San Simeon to see the Sea Lions lounging around on the sand.

Thanks, Pamela! You're lucky you get to go there that often; it's a beautiful coastal retreat.
