A Road Bending South - Poem by Taylor Rosewood

A road bending south
at a four degree bank-
gravity and motion
perfectly aligned-

The sun is a portal
yet to be entered.

Rows of sugarcane
sway in the wind.

I break off a stalk
to give to my daughter,
as millions of prisms
bend light on the sea.

She silently thanks me
and looks at the shoreline.

Flash bulbs of sunlight
streak pennant-like leaves.
