Dorian

Colorful paint swirls on paper

Prayers out sent to cover

Those its fury hath touched

Prayers sent up to gather

And bring winds of change

Turning the path’s course

To remain at sea

Syllabic Verse

Prayers for those in the Bahamas who are facing the destruction of Dorian’s wrath at this time.

Praying it’s fury will be lessened and it’s path turned out to sea so it will not make landfall anywhere else.

A Point of View

Billy Anderson’s Surveyor Tripod at Andersons View Point  July 2018

Memorialized

For years of dedication

Oversees the sea

Senryu

Andersons View Point in Tillamok County Oregon is a beautiful scenic roadside stop that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. This place memorializes Billy Anderson who was a dedicated surveyor for Tillamok County for many years. His surveyor’s transit tripod still stands on the banks overlooking the sea.

It is a great roadside stop with fantastic views of the ocean.

Seashore Sunset Senses

Sunset at Depoe Bay, Oregon, photo by Vivian Marcin 2018

Breathing in so deeply

Scents of seaweed and crisp air

As gulls seranade

And ocean foam caresses

Sand covered toes

Sunset glistens like gold

Shimmering on waves

That meet rocks and waiting cheek

With a salty kiss goodnight
