Billowing breeze hits the tumbling sea,
Rainbow mist, Pacific wave,
Breaking the lost blue into a spectrum, spun by the ocean.
Swallows dip and dive in the headwind,
Salmon in their ocean stream.
Sundowners strike up the ash,
Dust devils dance from the fire,
Embers purr beneath the breeze.
Trees twisted into the sunset,
The Amtrak clatters up the line,
Stars and stripes wrapped into each other,
A seagull soars,
I close my eyes.
