washington oregon rain snow fun


a country peculiar
makes sense but defies logic
and emotion
mild, but wild
and made of freeways
and parking lots and forests
with the sound of birds
and the din of the traffic
across the river
from where I stand
the wind blows and I think of you
minutes away
on the other side of town
drove through the pass
in a snow storm
to reach
the beach
the rocks, the sand
and a man, who serves breakfast
and dinner from illinois 
calls us folks
and tells bad jokes
his smile radiant with innocence
diesel, water, potato chips
nuanced criteria
front page hysteria
the clark and lewis trail
a rock measured in bales
and more tales 
of who we are...
