Notice for Penobscot Bay, Maine

The ferry to Vinalhaven is cancelled
today. At a distance I wonder who or
what in the natural world is responsible
for the delay––the gale that has blown
for three days, lifting towers of gray
waves? Sickness? Death?
All old friends
to island dwellers who roll the dice
each day of life on this rocky ledge,
and on this green sea, where they
and fish are meet to tell their stories.
