The Hibou

On November 21, 1936 at 4:50pm, the Hibou sank in Georgian Bay just outside of Owen Sound harbour. A small collection of poems marking this occasion, recollections, memory, time and water can be found here.

Morning observation #80

I am waiting for you
to wake up, waiting
for your first words,
wondering if they'll
arrive in a whisper,
voice cracking
slightly. I am waiting
for you to wake up,
watching your mouth,
slightly parted,
holding each moment,
discovering the
warmth in a pause.
