Big Sur and Monterey Bay, California

“On soft Spring nights I’ll stand in the yard under the stars – Something good will come out of all things yet – And it will be golden and eternal just like that – There’s no need to say another word.”
― Jack KerouacBig Sur

In honor of our trip, here’s my own hand at poetry.

Otters lay in their seaweed beds, drifting.

a glorious spray of salty water on the rocks,

where coast meets mountain.

where the trees swath the leaf-coated ground in cool shade,

and when the sun sets, ancient stars move across the sky,

telling us we are nothing.
