Pacific Surfliner

by Joan E.

Point Conception
dominates Central Coast
shipwreck ghosts haunt

hawks soar along
sea-cliff thermals above herds
ocean waves ignored

golden grasses sprout
on undulating hillocks
windswept trees clutch shore

swell after swell
surges in speedy succession
horizon shimmers

spray builds as waves crash
painting the air with fine mist
train window frames scenes



Scenes from our eight-annual Thanksgiving train trip from Los Angeles to San Luis Obispo on AMTRAK's Pacific Surfliner. I really did find Galia's photograph posted under trains on FanArt--she must have had as exciting an adventure!

Happy holiday weekend to all who celebrate Thanksgiving.
