72 northbound is
Mixed blue skies, luggage tags, deep
Accents of distance, like my
Dad’s blue measuring tape, now
stepping lightly through boyhood and
The world climbing bright with
Soft flickering sun
The mountains down
From the remaining ghosts of trains
And ravens over Lochside.
Was just talking to a neighbour about this…The Pogson family first moved to Saanichton in 1987, so even though I wasn’t technically born in Victoria General this is home. Added bonus, my mom was and that’s where she met dad who was a Hydro man like his father. I think that’s a bit of why. He didn’t want people to think they were getting special treatment and some new work came up in Cranbrook, BC. Also they had a baby named Tom there.
That Aforementioned baby.
