My kind of road trip

Going to Vancouver City, BC
Grace @ Everyday Amazing



I want to go where the road 
meets the sky & white-capped mountains -

I want my eyes to feast beyond the 
sea wall,  mossed & dotted brown by geese  -

I want my hands to catch the hum & trill
of forest beat & symphony of wildflowers - 

I want my eyes to follow the wings of seagulls & 
black crows, soaring fearlessly above the bay-  

And these - the rush of the wind, heat on my face, 
sands beneath my feet, time to sip as the sun sets- 

My words simmer and cluster, then fall
like waves against the rocks, endless & free  -

  16. Gorgeous photos and wonderful poem for my home city, Grace. Thank you. I didn't get there when we drove out last week, just visited my family in the seaside suburbs, where the feeling is almost the same. A gorgeous piece of Canada, wrapped around by sea and sky, with mountains in between.
