Big Lift Ferry Poem F356

Shedding tears from cold –
Possibly from sadness, too –
With recent events

Notes to this poem…

My eyes were watering in the slightly cold wind on this ferry ride. Without knowing so, seeing me look straight forward sternly on the ferry, one could be forgiven for thinking I was weeping over something, like that 8-11 election result in the US.

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.
