First View of the Pacific

August 16, 2012

White lines on the road

 

OOOOORepeat

OOOOOOOOOOWhite lines on the road

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBlack.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOThe snoring of passengers

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOThe rustling of bags

 

OOOOOOOOOOThe vast window –

 

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOColour.

 

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGreen

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO hop-scotching

OOOOOOOOOOOOO over rocks as

The teeth of the cliff edge open ahead:

 

The Pacific.

 

A sketched outline with the sky

Brush stroked softly between two blues

Horizontal clouds recline and stretch beneath the canopy.

The vista broken

 

By the rising and falling of land and wave.

 

 

A gradient sky lets

The sun

OOOOOOwash

OOOOOOOOOOitself on the water

 

The landscape turns to

OOOOOOmoonlike silhouettes

 

And layers of wave paint the sand.
