I felt so brave. Flying all the way here alone, first time I’d ever done that. Testing my wings after a long broken period. I thought of you of course. You’d been on my mind far more often than I cared to admit. No coincidence I was here, the Pacific coast was on my bucket list due to some of your photos in our correspondence. You knew my itinerary but I didn’t dare hope you might come to meet me. The bridge creaked and I turned back to see you silhouetted against blue sky and green fields. Your smile looked like home.

Pacifica ~ Acrostic II

Pacifica

Petrol coloured waves chase
Across shell strewn sand
California’s other side
Indifferent to a foreigner’s ideals
Fickle wind tugs at my curls
Inspiring a love for this craggy place
Cradled today in foggy ribbons
Adrift in seaweed scented dreams

“Acrostic Poetry is where the first letter of each line spells a word, usually using the same words as in the title.”

Blomidon ~ Acrostic I

Birthplace of Glooskap
Legends born in the land of the Mi’kmaq
O’Wellalin for this rugged beauty
My mountain home is calling me
In my veins saltwater flows
Drawing me to my Atlantic home
Oh beloved ocean waves so blue
Not long ’til my heart returns to you
