• Blue Marble

    by Ozzy Demir

    You! Yes you, the blue marble
    Why are you so corrupted?
    Why are flowers dying within you?
    What made you so wild, so blood thirsty?
    At the end you always liquidate all of us anyway
    You! The blue marble
    On you we are all different but the same
    From top to bottom, all around
    Why aren’t we accepting this?
    Yes you! The wicked, corrupted, unlucky blue marble
    But there IS good in you
    Where the flowers meet with green grass
    Where the sunshine warms your aged skin
    Where water flows through your land
    Shall we perish blue marble?
    Shall we?
    Perhaps you know a way to circumvent
    The disasters and wars and much, much more
    Still you live and breathe like a veteran
    That gives us hope
    Inside the colored swirls
    That fascinate the children peering into your blueness

  • Beach Report Card


    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.
