Pigeon Point Lighthouse

If you’re lucky to be
driving along Highway 1
and reach Pigeon Point
on a clear day in Spring
it might strike you
as a pretty place.

Dark rock promontory
imposing old tower
pelicans and seagulls skimming
ultra-white foam of breaking waves
pink and yellow wildflowers
crowding the shore.

But should the wind pick up
blowing in covers of cold fog
bullying and blackening waters and sky
hold fast to the helm
listen for ocean shallows
seek the safety of the pulsating light.
