Garrapata State Park

Located twenty miles down Highway 1
from California State University, Monterey Bay.
Up a trail, past the two porta-potties there was none;
a worn down old barn with significant lack of hay.

A cactus sea resides nearby
Billowing alongside the ever clear sky.
I see his spirit walking between you and I…
Smiling, arms open wide to greet on high.
These picturesque mountains of great defeat
Serve more than an Ohlone retreat.
White clouds overhead proved
Love is not absolutely destitute to be doomed
Sea frosty breezes raise goosebumps that thrive,

Yes, we are alive.
Green as far as the eye can see;
Not money hungry but soul searching, indeed.
Come from your dorms from where you breathe
In search of what you may need.
-Good luck on your journey-
