BCS, 2009

Sea of Cortez
Rolls in and breaks on the shore
Blue, warm, clear and alive
The east cape is teeming
Turtles and rocks glisten
In the hot Sun of the day
We stop to measure the life of it
A miracle striving to exist at all
The shores beckon like a siren
The water is pure and clean
The roads tell the story of desolation
Dusty tracks winding off into the heat
Waves of vision in the distance
Palapa beach and Jennifer beagle
A barking dog chased the truck
The car backed onto a rock
Damage fixed with prayer and beer
Shrimp tacos, blue eyed dogs at Pulmo
Blue paint and diver's flags
A corner store that sells tortillas
Road trip round the west side
Pacific waves break on the shore
Hotel California margarita
All saints for sale in tourista shop
La Paz sunset, Palmero's piano
Wrong way on a one way street
Ballandra deep blue bliss
The fish swim in formation
We blend in with the locals
And see Snow Walker on king size
Return to San Jose and the water
The blue water
The friendship thickens
