Big Lift Ferry Poem F365

The sea is troubled –
But not by the wind –
High tide seas without a breeze

Notes to this poem…

Halifax harbour was fairly turbulent at the time I wrote this poem. However, there was hardly any wind blowing. It was due to the tides, which is an eerie thing to observe and experience cause it seems like there’s something huge lurking beneath stirring up all these waves without the wind blowing much. It’s just a silent and gentle rolling of some massive volumes of water!

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.
