Mukilteo (at Rose Hill)

At Rose Hill, you must
try rose water chocolate,
see Possession Sound
the color of storms.

At Rose Hill, you must
try lavender cheesecake,
see the white caps
cupping evergreen rain.

At Rose Hill, you must
try Bangalore spice,
see the lighthouse,
see the shore,
see the thunderbirds rich with lore.

At Rose Hill, you must
try yellow curry, coconut milk,
see Hat Island,
taste cinnamon dust.

At Rose Hill, you must.

Mukilteo is a city on the coast of Washington and a favorite of my family with its spectacular views, scrumptious chocolate, bold Northwest Coast art, fine restaurants, and delightful atmosphere.

Pine (ing)

in rainland
we long for snow
but oh! the green

Pacific Northwest

Green winter notes
in January
bleed into February--
scent of pine, lavender,
           honey in my tea.

We slice lemon,
bake salmon, peppery
and warm

           like you,
a wild, wild rose,
no hint of snow--
grow 'round my calves,
up my thighs,
hug my hips
a little tighter,

hold me
to spring.

Conifers and

seagrass and

where fresh
meets salt,

where the tide
meets the river

in a cocktail
of creation;

a symphony,
if you will,

of the Conductor’s hand
who sets the tempo

and shapes the Sound
I live in.

For Poetry Jam:  Where You’re At.  Peggy has asked us to write about where we live.  I live in Puget Sound, a beautiful estuary region in Washington State.
