Hello hello~ Time for #HaikuSunday~
☀️ CALI ☀️
by Onion, E.
El Porto beach at South Bay, LA, SoCal
I can only imagine
What it is like there.
The beach looks normal,
With sands and an ocean view,
Like any other.
The only reason
I would even think of it
Is because of him.
I wasn't sure of what to title this because I wasn't sure of what my focus was: my thoughts on the beaches of Los Angeles, California... or the reason why I'd even be thinking of them. I haven't been there before and I only know what they show in movies, series, and games. Above all, I'm not a beach fan. I'm more of a city admirer.
Still, I think it'd be nice to go there... wherever 'there' is. Why? Simple: someone who means a lot to me came from L.A. However, he never gave exact detail of where he came from, except that he skateboarded home from his high school together with his best friend on rollerblades. Along the way, he would pass by the beach. Which beach? We'll never know.
He said he didn't like the beach, though. It was too bright and the ocean was like an embodiment of loneliness to him, despite him being a Pisces dude (horoscopes were trendier than MBTI). Still, he frequented the beach a lot with his best pal who loved it. The only reason the beach ever meant anything to him was because of his best pal who meant a lot to him.
And that, too, is why California even means anything to me... because that was he came from. If he didn't exist, neither would my thoughts of Cali... or the way I would think of it.
To end my post, have this bonus song which coincidentally has the words California and lonely in it. I like this band's songs, by the way.
