First one to arrive
In the ferry terminal!
And just one of two

Notes to this poem…
Taking the first ferry of the day at 645 AM, I thought there would be people by the time I arrived at the terminal that was barely two minutes before it left. Surprisingly, I was the first one. That surprise was an easy choice for my short ferry poems. It just got finished last as I got on the upper deck, into nature, and got inspired by other poems (F36 and F37) that I completed very quickly.
The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
