Port Hood Rendezvous

Clouds diagram darkness as wind-driven
waves chase whitecaps to the shore.

Oceanís turmoil sheds a sleek fishing boat
heralding a 647 lb tuna catch
lobster-cod-mackerel awaiting unload

families joyous in their frenzy at dockside
sharing space by slatted lobster traps.

Oh to race the wind in a Lady Shelby of my
own and bring home a bragging catch.
