Big Lift Ferry Poem F152

A beautiful mangåta 
From a full moon on
The summer solstice

Notes to this poem…

See picture below. First time it has happened in Eastern Canada since 1967. In other words, I have never seen one in my life!

The moon was a bit off the horizon for a perfect mangåta. However, I’m not complaining.


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.
