The ocean Atlantic, signals its intentions
October winds morphing Fundy Bay
into a matrix of rocking currents, a tumult
galloping from the north-west
scraping greedily at rocky cliffs, uncovers
scraps of memory birthed by evolution
where creature fossils avail themselves,
mummified in archeological digs,
captured within Nova Scotian shale
prehistoric prints imbedded in a pot-pourri
of ancient mud, yet to be discovered.

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.
