Bow Hill Road (a poem)

A familiar sight driving north on I-5 towards Bellingham and the Canadian border is the exit sign for Bow Hill Road…

It’s been years since I last saw you
Bow Hill Road
every day another mile between us

I remember an old photograph
the blurry freeway sign
as we drove on by in the rain

Soon we’ll make new memories
Bow Hill Road
every day a new bond between us
