A poem inspired by the natural beauty on the rugged west coast of British Columbia.
Nels Bight

Salal and rugged west coast
Bear scat and berries
Muddy trails and ferns
Line the rotting boardwalks
We hike for hours in this emerald forest
and reach the sea and its majestic
a beauty like no other
Each time I came back to the coast
I fall in love
I fall in love
With the rolling waves
And the washed up kelp
Cedars and pines along the beach and
Driftwood and sand
Sand imprinted with the ocean’s fingers
In long curved lines
Marking the bight
sand plovers dart and flash above
The shoreline like choppers
Where beyond,
Whales are blowing out in the open ocean
Incredible, wild, wet and pure

Here, called back to the sea
I let it hold me here
Salty air and sandy bottoms
