Letter to the editor- Heaven is at Lake Tahoe

To the editor:


If I was asked for a place I considered

“Heaven on Earth”

I would name Lake Tahoe.

I have never seen a place as breathtaking.

The snowcapped mountains on every horizon,

The clear blue sky in every direction,

With the cotton-candy white clouds to keep it company.

The glistening, gorgeous blue lake

Peaceful as can be.

Just happy to bob along under the sunlight

In the form of tiny waves.

The dark brown sand

Still warm to the touch at 9 at night.

The people here are all equally amazed.

All of them also appreciate the lake’s beauty.

And last,

The gorgeous sunset

As the sun goes down beyond the high mountains

And gives in to the moon

So it can rest until dawn.

Just heaven.
