Big Lift Ferry Poem F288

Ferry on the mångata –
Is my favourite
Sight from the ferry

Notes to this poem…

Mångata is a Swedish word for the moon’s reflection on the water, looking like a road to the moon, which is what it means. It’s one of my favourite words and has been used in many poems on this blog from natural scenes inspired by it. The picture below inspired the description in this haiku.

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.
