Image for the poem A d r i f t

A d r i f t

The views are frosted over with the frail, †  
A winter's chill holds captive bowed sea grass †  
While shoreline snowdrifts pale, †  
And whitecaps cast their lines, †  
The world in hibernation as they pass. †  
† †
And I, a misplaced journeyman afoot †  
Adrift so far away my west coast home, †  
Have come to touch the time †  
My kith and kin had roamed, †  
From Scotland, Wales & Nova Scotia's clime.
Yet even though I walk a windswept prow, †  
I tend to cast my gaze back out to sea †  
With fervent set of brow † †
As if to find at last †  
A ship aground who's cargo waits for me. †  
† †
† †
† †
