Canal life

 

Softly flowing water,
Debris bobbing
In the ebb and flow
Owl eyed
boatish heterotopias
Line up proudly
Scorning life on land.

 

 

 

Reluctant

 

 

 

 

River children
Dawdle to school
to boast of life on water
And a home that floats
Most wondrously
Between the city
and the delta;
Both places
alike to them
Watched
by protective eyes.

  1. Love the pictures and write-up of a life that is foreign to me – I go sometimes to Fisherman’s Wharf here and envy those who get to live on the houseboats there, some of them quite elaborate… 🙂
