 INHERITANCE

by JOHN DOTSON             

Behold the chasm of creation
That gapes from Granite Point
Across the inlet to Whalers Cove
To Big Dome and to Terminal Rock--
Where relic cypresses
Gyrate among cliffs already blocked
From the low, southern sun
Which lays its golden beam
Across the body of Carmel Bay.
