Big Lift Ferry Poem F325

Forest on the edge
Of the ocean horizon –
Lots of boats out there

Notes to this poem…

Must have been a regatta going on out on the horizon as seen from Halifax Harbour. All those masts on the sailboats, with some sails to give them volume, made them look like a little forest at the edge of the horizon.

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.
