Big Lift Ferry Poem F191

The jet vapour trails –
Glowed more with time as
Sunlight hit them the right way

Notes to this poem…

I saw these jet vapour trails near dusk. As the sun set more, its light hit the vapour trails in a way that reflected more orange, and thus glow, towards my eyes.

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.
