Lone Cyprus

 I love the ocean and used to visit Monterrey and  Carmel by the Sea  often. I have had the luxury of visiting this sight on several occasions.
This tree is over 200 years old and is still standing.


I stand unmoved
 by the shifting winds
of popular opinion.
  I stand untouched by
the blistering heat
of disapproval.

Waves may crash
against me
storms may rage
around me
All whom I trust
may abandon me

still

I stand firm in my beliefs
my faith a beacon
in the dark

~poem "I stand" by Michael Traveler
