Dear Ones,

Here is a poem in three parts that was inspired by walks in the Santa Monica Mountains …

JOY SPRINGS FORTH:
A POEM IN THREE PARTS
by Alice B. Clagett
About the Santa Monica Mountains
18 December 2004

Springtime in the mountains,
. . . . and my heart
. . . . charts a fragrant course
. . . . through Ceanothus seas.

The afternoon sun
. . . . sings soft green dreams,
. . . . and mountain slumbers.

Grey ghost
. . . . of yesterday’s white fire,
. . . . yucca exclaims upon the mountain
. . . . “I am I!”

. . . . .

In love, light and joy
I Am of the Stars
