Heaven in Santa Monica

By Nancy Shiffrin

Here’s a poem which expresses the peaceful beauty of Santa Monica -

HEAVEN

a squirrel
scavenges bread crusts
at the corner café
I  turn
and watch two petals
detach
from a full-blown rose

lustrous pink  edged with wine white at
the center
they drift down
the fragile afternoon breeze
the squirrel
scurries
to the top of a palm tree
his treasure
clenched between his
teeth

in the blinding summer chill
for just one moment
my chattering mind
is silent
