Big Lift Ferry Poem F179

Jet across the sky –
Vapour trails behind –
A slow, man-made meteor

Notes to this poem…


Ever thought to think of seeing a jet with vapour trails across the sky that way? It might make more sense to think of seeing one in the moonlight at night when it might be visible and look more like a meteor most often seen at night.

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.
