From the Maritimers series -

they say the sea is generous,
so they harvest in between storms…

tie all their hopes around bollards,
defying salt, brown of the rust -

their will to live to fishing nets,
in the harbour,
a bit of warmth.

“nordicblackbird” – pirate, poet, visual artist, maritimer… day-dreamer, nomadic heart par excellence :)). I write and breathe on 60N, “my” bonhoga [spiritual home] with a penchant for world collaborative adventures. Welcome, bonjour to my nordic garden :).
