A big shoutout to Woodworkers of the World Unite for publishing Proud Number 14. Frankly, I never thought I’d write a poem about a buoy, but I did, and its evolution surprised me. Special thanks to Michael Krahn @ Unsplash for the featured image.
Much thanks to the editors at The Lark for publishing The Mountain and Ocean. A wonderful site. Please check it out. I’ve always had a fascination with both a mountain and an ocean, and especially enjoy when they come together like so many places in California. The video was shot by Alice Tulin in Ventura. Please enjoy this short video poem.
This poem was written to express my gratitude at being able to experience the ocean from the seat of a bicycle. “Riding Like a God” was originally published at the wonderful site, Scrittura. The video was taken along the Ventura coastline.
