The Harbor


Down in the harbor
boatmen and women
are making repairs


steadily preparing
to wrap up for winter


cocooning



as the sun 
slides lower and lower
in the sky


and the dinghies
lie in wait


for their final shuttles
of the season
. . .

  1. if i could be be a boat, i'd want to be a dinghy. or maybe a canoe. both boats are quiet and helpful. plus, they look effortlessly pretty perched above that dark blue water.

  3. I think Camden, Maine should be granted some special privilege to be summer all year long. It is such a lovely spot! And this is coming from someone who loves Boothbay!! So picturesque and friendly.

    1. No clams. Outside on a bench sipping coffee and eating a chocolate croissant. Mmmm.
