Harbour @tomharding99

Late morning,


sun high above the harbour,


all is quiet


except for the ferry that docks every hour


to collect tourists,


and the occasional morning boat


tugging slowly to its destination.


The sea is calm and glinting softly


and there is nothing turbulent,


no breeze or murmur,


no mention of the way the world really is,


so you know you must


try to keep it somehow,


and watch it closely


and hold it for all the moments


that won’t be like this;


the sweet industry of the harbour,


its ferry and its boats,


the waiting captain and idle walkers,


talking busily in the middle of their lives.
