First, violent rain;
now blue snippets through the gray.
A bad travel day.

Number one gannet
colony equals one hell
of a sound and smell.

Will the plane fly out?
Fog socks in the wee island,
Wouldn’t mind staying.

Vieux Convent makes me
dream of flying and autos
(and I don’t know why).

Wind whips through my hair.
Can’t see! But I hear the mews
of small kittiwakes.

An earthquake delayed
my train — waited in the woods
and thought, “this is odd.”

An overnight train
through Quebec — clickity-clack —
a sky full of stars.
