(for P.Y.) Here I am: "Hometown Boy Makes Good" Writes one critic. All my childhood I lived By the blue Pacific. Anytime that reality Makes me heartsick I come here just to stare At the blue Pacific Sea. And barefoot on the beach I watch for you on the horizon. That's where you promised you would be. I've seen your face before in my imagination. One day my eyes will learn to see. Here by the blue Pacific where The diamond water shimmers in the sun. By the blue Pacific where The gull still glides and waves divide The silence just like time. Understandably happy to be specific When I'm snorkeled and finned In the blue Pacific. I admire the damselfish Feel terrific As I float on the face Of the blue Pasific.
