Bar Harbor Poem Nor'easter Poem and Postcard

Postcards from Bar Harbor in a Spring Nor’easter

A black and white
striated storm flag streaks
across its tethered space.

High tide is windswept
over stone impediments
forging the harbor pier.

Pick-up trucks are battered
by strong waves that crash
the anchorage wall head-on.

A single lobster boat is tugging
at its mooring in a roiling
bay of sea-sized waves.

An island in the background
fades behind a driving rain
in mists from endless surf.

We watch in silence while
the sound of wind is drowning
everything in view.
