The Harbour – #2


He said he loved the harbour;

That the gathering of boats

Stretching infinitely out of sight,

Like hundreds of soldiers before battle,

Brought order to his chaos-stricken life.

The harmony of sea and sky formed


Along with the reflection in the water,

Where he could see our hands intertwined.

Writing my First Fifty – #1

It was hard to pick a subject,

Harder to be concise,

To articulate only the main attributes of my chosen area,

To not expect too much from a first attempt,

But neither to feel like the exercise was pointless.

And then before I knew it…

I’d hit the magic fifty.
