Road to Mendocino

The road slices through regal redwoods
Speckles of sunlight skim canopies of branches
Redolence tingling noses
Continuing through fertile valleys
Ripened Cabernet grapes suspended
Migrant workers cutting
Bunches with sharp knives
September sun drubbing
Bandanas wipe sweaty brows
While winery owners stay cool
Inside climate controlled rooms

The road winds, turns
Descending altitudes
Culminating in intersection
Pacific Coast Highway
The sky is cloudless, azure
Ocean tint echoes
Boulders bulge
Birds claim domain
Whitening rocks

The road runs between
Old clapboard houses
People don’t build new ones
Defending history
Now “Bed and Breakfasts”
Or “Galleries”
Artists draw in, mesmerized
All standing, cliff’s edge at sunset
Big orange orb plunging

Outside of town
The road leads to
Milkyways
Startlingly visible
To eyes old and new

Corinne - A lovely trip through the California wine country ... straight to the Pacific's edge. I've been there ... thanks for taking me back.
