Waterfall of fire –
Off MacDonald Bridge –
From the Big Lift construction

Notes to this poem…

Tonight was one of the nights when they started replacing a section of the MacDonald Bridge in the redecking project called The Big Lift. There is a lot of welding, or probably metal cutting, to take apart bridge sized steam beams and such. As a result, there was a LOT of welding like fire coming off the bridge, looking like a waterfall of fire. It was really gorgeous, but I didn’t have a decent camera with me to capture it. Another night I will get back on that ferry with a decent camera.

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.
