Harbourwalk Poem W047

Do something with this minute –
Hour – day – life time –
What’s the difference?

Notes to this poem…

The depressing perspective of what does it matter ultimately? When the Earth ceases to exist, and no alien species will carry on our legacy, or may not comprehend any of it. Aren’t we all just fulfilling, as in seeing through, some natural set of chemical and physics reactions in the grandest of flasks that is the universe?

The W-series poems comprise mostly of haiku or tanka composed during walks I took on the portion of Halifax’s waterfront known as the Harbourwalk, in 2018, when the Seabridge was in place.
