drivin' the one

poppies of orange blanket the mountains
and dress the coastal roadside
with their contagious smiling faces.
the paved snake hugs
each tight curve 
that belts around the looming cliffs.

i roll the window down
letting the breeze run through my fingers.
the company of a dear friend
and my nikon draping around my neck
convinces me that
this joy
is a taste of the kingdom.

satisfaction and gratitude
drip the ink from my pen
as i cross off
"drive along the 1"
from my list of things to do.
