First weekday morning
Ferry ride poem for my
Big Lift collection –
Thrice in a week to Woodside –
After none in a few years

Notes to this poem…
When it rains in my life, it pours. After not having taken any ferry rides to Woodside in the past year and a bit, I was suddenly on my third such ride in five days.
It was also my first ferry ride on a weekday morning since I started writing these poems over a year ago. I had been on weekday afternoon rides, on some days off, but not a morning one. This one was for going to a work event.
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.
