Big Lift Ferry Poem F392

Gazelle, machine –
Horse, deer, wind –
Or some other thing –
What do I like my running
To be compared to?
There’s only one thing –
That my running
Truly compares to –
That is the wind –
I run like the wind

Notes to this poem…

It’s nice people compare my running to all kinds of flattering things mentioned, and some others. However, in my mind, I only ever think of my running in terms of one thing, and that’s the wind.

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.
