In the Pines

Up the Coast Highway from Half Moon Bay, a right turn after Frenchman’s Creek, and I’m winding past the familiar eucalyptus groves, pumpkin patches and strawflower fields. By the horse paddock, I follow a dirt road to my house. Hummingbirds sip from columbine growing wild in the front yard. At dusk, ravens call from the fogbound mountain. This is where, without warning, I was left on my own.

rainy season—
the castle of dreams
collapses
