[Crossing Puget Sound – Seattle, WA]
Across the rivers
beyond the valleys
And fields of corn, soy, and wheat.
Passed deserts and other mountains
I find myself in a land of hills and mountains
And forests of cypress and pine,
And cold lakes…
Where the ocean is to the west,
And east is somewhere different…
A land so very far away from home.
Beauty waiting to be cherished and explored;
New and alive,
A rushing of energy…
Adventures to unfold
for this east-coast-person?
