Notes to this poem…

This is what mangåta means.


This was the view I had pretty much the entire ferry ride to inspire all these mangåta poems on this ferry ride. Eleven poems in one ferry ride is a new record, and one which I’m now quite sure I’ll never beat. I thought eight was far more than I might ever get again. However, give me the right natural inspiration and my poetic heart just lights up with output!

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.
