The road slices through
Regal redwoods
Speckles of sunlight skim
Canopies of branches
Flickering dark to light
Redolence of pine
Tingling noses

Through fertile valleys
Cabernet grapes suspended
Migrant workers cutting
Bunches with sharp knives
September sun drubbing
Bandanas wipe sweaty brows
Winery owners stay cool
Inside climate controlled rooms

The road turns, narrows
Descending altitudes
Culminating in intersection
Pacific Coast Highway
Cloudless azure sky
Ocean reflects like a fire opal
Boulders bulge
Birds claiming domain
Whitening rocks

It cuts between
Old clapboard houses
People preserving
Historic logging town
Now “Bed and Breakfasts”
Or “Galleries” displaying
Wood carvings of lighthouses
Ships, or Gulls
Old-time bars bustling

Artists drawn in, mesmerized
Stand at cliff’s edge, sunset
Big orange orb plunging

Outside of town
The road leads to
Milkyways
On show
For eyes old and new

I can't think of the words I wanna say here, sorry. I'm tired and I think my brain quite working! hehe
You've painted a vivid picture that I enjoyed much!
