• Desire

    by Disha Singh

    The desire of the world swirls around us
    in blowing, gusting winds.
    The desire of the world mills around us
    until all of the lights dim.

    We may die today,
    we may die tomorrow.
    I don’t know what to say
    except I’ve seen the world’s sorrow.

    There is not much left to see
    since everything around us is engulfed with fire.
    This is what happens when we let our yearnings be
    the destruction of everything begins with desire.

    The desire of the world blows around us until the end of time.

  • 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.
