Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia

Between a sky of pale blue, streaked with white, 
and a glassy sea of royal blue, 
there lies a land of  lavender  rock,
where wind blown grasses grow in briny 
patches around weather beaten houses
brushed  in  pastel shades of yellow, pink, 
and green and blue.

A grey  fishing shack  stands on silts
beyond the waters edge, 
deep in  rippling reflections of itself 
and the sky that shimmers across the inlet
to the other side, where a dory 
tethered to a dock stacked high with reels
of blue and orange ropes and buoys, 
rests peacefully in the noon-day sun, with me, 
on these long cold winter nights.
