Big Lift Ferry Poem F305

Ship out of water –
In full lit display
For everyone to see

Notes to this poem…


I wish I had a picture of the small military ship on what looked like a giant display stand, with the stand floating on water. Lots of lights all around to light up the ship for everyone else to see. Unfortunately, I was a little too far away to take a decent picture with my phone camera. It was an interesting sight, though I don’t know why the ship was mounted as such and could only guess it was being fixed. Still, I was surprised to see it on display in the open like that.

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.
