Videos Series: Who Are We?

In this video, part one of many, we feature writer Carol Rotta.


Ocean Waves


Friendly lapping, relentless action
Fashions of majestic passion

All in coming, all in going
All in splendid dashing reaction

Always changing, never ending
Curling, smashing, crashing, splashing



Bananas, savanna, I live in a cabana in Havana.
Or is it an oasis with lovely faces?

Oh where’s the city where everything’s pretty?
I drive downtown with bustling sounds.

A long walk and then I see
painted sky with flowing color
that shines graffiti on concrete walls.

Soon I hear in evening air
enchanting songs that draw me near
a peaceful place without a care.
