I am standing at the edge of the United States, breathing in the beauty.

I am in a grove of madrone trees, contrasting their brilliant red and pistachio green with the deep blue of the Pacific spread before me.

Snow-crested Olympic mountains trace the horizon, creating an impressive band of white and gold.

I am standing at the edge of my adopted country, staring at my homeland.

O Canada, the True North strong and free!

Life in 5 lines or less© usually appears here Saturdays.  But some weekends are so full of living in gratitude that writing comes last.
