Harbourwalk Poem W395

Hope they will keep the
Sea Bridge open long enough
For me to want to –
Do these Harbourwalk strolls –
To reach five hundred poems

Notes to this poem…

That Sea Bridge is the only thing that keeps me coming back to walk the Harbourwalk, and writing poems for this collection in the process. That’s probably a stretch goal at this point, being at 390 and trying to write one a day during work lunch walks. I might have to make a few dedicated poetry writing walks like before to come home with batches to reach 500 this year. I don’t think the Sea Bridge will be back, at least not where it is now, in 2020 for me to get to 500 poems for this collection at this rate. They take it out during the winter due to storms, and storm surges in the ocean, not to mention snow that would weigh it down and make it more dangerous, and snow clearing if they try to keep it open and safe.

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, during the warmer months of 2018 & 2019, when the Seabridge was in place.
