A Neighbor’s Beautiful Farewell to Forest Knolls
Neighbor Erika Burke is a copywriter, editor and website designer, and loves to write for herself and her clients. Here’s her website: scribe415.com
And she’s moving. Not far, happily, just across Clarendon Avenue – but away from Forest Knolls neighborhood. In farewell, she wrote a poem and sent some photographs. (All photographs in this page are hers, and used with permission.)
The glittering lights sparkle like myriad lives lived in the distance spackling the hillsides from my perch high atop San Francisco’s Wuthering Heights.
After the sun has split the sky into breathtaking colors that only imagination can conjure.
The sea so far in the distance is mine in its perfect horizon.
I bid it farewell this view that makes whole my inside with natures varying perfection.
Sweeping, fortuitous, the dear fog, the swooping birds, the implacable hills, the bitty boxes, the impossible clouds, the silence.
It has been mine, in my sight.
I am expanded forever.
Farewell, Erika and enjoy your new place!
