A Scar In The Earth's Skin

My friend Toni Kaus took this picture north of San Francisco where the trace of the San Andreas Fault can be seen in the valley floor, Here the fault heads offshore beneath the waters of the Pacific Ocean. I was moved to write a sort of Haiku about it.



A giant scar in the Earth's skin! 
The cool breezes of northern California assuage the pain 
But the scar is not yet done 
The land on the seaside will one day collide with Alaska 
Moving Earth Moves me.
