Pinpoints of light mimic startled flashes
from watery reflections, down, then up
to nightfall's limit
and the Causeway pierces an ancient route
learned from daring explorers,
their bouncing ships crunching on Nova Scotian
Scott's lumbering trucks with yesterday's
trunks of forest-memories,
huge loads of felled wilderness
tune in to new adventures, into frilly
napkins and paper and modern usages.
And nearby on reed-like legs, viewing
an unfolding world, as feathered forefathers
once stood in awe-
cormorants hulking on weathered pylons
aside Northumberland Strait.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org re comments on our work. We live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Pray for others.
