• Reality

    by Meriel Glysson

    I yearn for the bliss of serenity
    As my whole life flashes before my eyes
    And death’s sweet call tears me from reality

    Obscure thoughts warp my mentality
    Dizzy and spinning in knots and ties
    I yearn for the bliss of serenity

    The hostile mind commits brutality
    Filling the world with hate and lies
    While death’s sweet call tears us from reality

    Life is an unending spiral of abnormality
    Trying to grasp a light to arise
    Yearning for the bliss of serenity

    With the mindset of mortality
    We collect our memories so no one dies
    When death’s sweet call tears us from reality

    To obtain the purist state of equanimity
    One must obliterate the thoughts we deemed unwise
    I yearn for the bliss of serenity
    As death’s sweet call tears me from reality.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
