Seattle and I

Rich connection

Not easily apparent

Flowing in and out

Proximity only one part

Of home’s definition


Generations of my family

Born, died, remained

Here. Forever.

Parents both born

In Washington

One to the east,

One to the west

Feet in both worlds


I need to explore it all

And capture the dynamics

Of rapid change;

Flowing with a more

Languid paced

Life across the mountains

A world a dream
