Waiting for the Sun

It seems like some part of Point Lobos is always waiting for the sun to shine. This view is now just a memory

A mass of green Cypress.

A mirage of red.

Windswept

Red moss hanging from the branches of Cypress.

I raised my eyes and saw the path.

A grove of windswept Cypress trees.

Cliff Cypresses by Dora Hagemeyer, 1947

CLIFF CYPRESSES Food from the granite Stone for the hungry root - Storm for the rugged shoot. What slow flame Struggles to triumph here Year upon difficult year? What desperate faith Writhes in these twisted limbs, Sings in the wordless hymns? When the rock splits They wrestle with each other, Brother contrives with brother For writhing’s sake. No peace can smooth or define A curve, a delicate line. Summers burn blue - Yet the torture wrought in the seed In anguished form is freed Torture and triumph!
