Fog mingles with rain, and snags
in the tops of the redwoods,
not reaching the road where
the trees close in densely.
Morning paper amuses, informs
while the wind shakes the metal shell
around us and blurs the boundaries
between grey waves and grey rain.
We race the shifting sun and clouds
and chase the rainbow
up the coast highway
past orange pumpkin fields and green hills
before turning city-ward again.

Photo is this past Saturday in Kentucky, but it reminded me of our day-off adventure, all those years ago.
