outline against Canso's shore
at harbour's open mouth
we share his vision,
visitor-searching along the Marine Trail
as seagulls pause, bleached necks
framed by an Atlantic expanse.
Our car intrudes upon the winding
asphalt, travels from cove
to silent cove
our strength renewed.

My wife, Esther and I really enjoy writing. It is an excellent salve, in addition to prayers, a great wife and family during my continuing recovery from a stroke/aneurysm. You can contact us at: email@example.com re comments on our work. We live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Pray for others.
