Big Lift Ferry Poem F116

There is so much fog tonight –
I can hardly see
Well enough to text

Notes to this poem…


This haiku was technically a small lie in that I wasn’t texting. I was doing essentially the same thing, just composing poetry on my phone’s Notes app. Also a small exaggeration, but not much.

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.
