Water Like Glass
The harbor surface like glass,
broken by a freighter approaching
the river, a behemoth
that consumes the channel.
Kayaks move to the side,
surrender to its mass as they bob
in its wake. Time crawls
as the ship crawls past.
A crewman on the stern waves,
the waves in the wake behind him
fading as calm returns.
Water like glass greets the kayaks.
I’m off prompt for Day 10 at napowrimo.net.
In the company of the Niagara River and two of the Great Lakes, of course I spent time on the waterfront when I visited Buffalo in November 2020.
