Big Lift Ferry Poem F043

Tonight’s ferry was
The disturbance in the Force
Of the calm harbour

Notes to this poem…

Having just seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens earlier today, the whole Star Wars and the Force things were on my mind. Despite a little wind out on the water, the ocean harbour was pretty placid looking and feeling.

That was except for waves made by the ferry. Hence, the metaphor. 🙂

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.
