Glorious golden California!
From your progressive policies to your poppies, let me count the ways that I love you:
I love the way your ridges hug the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean.
I love the way the waves lap at your shoreline.
I love the way the wispy white clouds touch the sky.
I love your trees, (those Redwoods!) your bees, your fruits, and your vegetables.
I love your birds soaring high and nestled in your branches and the ones flitting about the earth seeking things to nibble.
I love your crabs and your frogs, your goats, sheep, and dogs!
I love your flowers. your forests, your mountains, your valleys, your lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, and creeks, your deserts, your parks, your islands – all your gorgeous geography!
From your farms to your cities; I love it all.
I’m so in love with you Cali, that I must leave now for a walk among your beauty. I can’t wait another minute!
