Big ship coming through –
Atlantic Huron –
Cutting the harbour in two

Notes to this poem…
A reasonably big ship, but not absolutely gigantic. The big wake it left behind was ironically fairly flat compared to the seas around it. The wake also lasted a long time, seemingly cutting the harbour into two halves to each side of the Atlantic Huron ship as it traveled.
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.
