A Poem in Three Parts: California

“In September my husband Vere and I rented an RV and took a two-week trip around California. We went up the backside of the Sierras, crossed over and then came down the California coast. There were some places where the summer fires still burned, the smoke turned the sky dark, and some roads were closed due to the fires. Despite that, it was a good trip that allowed us to have a vacation without air travel, hotels, or being in close contact with any group of people. It also gave us the opportunity to enjoy this varied and beautiful state with its deserts, forests, and coastline. I wrote as we went along, noting the three changes of scenery and the following is the result. Enjoy.”
