Double Original Friday – You Flew Back Home


My original poem today continues on the theme of “haiku-like.” The photograph was taken by me on Santa Cruz island in the Channel Islands National Park. We had hiked all day across the island and had maybe seen one other group the whole time and virtually no sign of human habitation until we crested a hill and began our descent into Scorpion Bay. Abandoned machinery (drilling equipment?) littered the plains, but was so antiquated and decrepit that it had become part of the remote beauty of the place.
