Treasure Island

(California/USA)

A Road Bending South


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.

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
