Memory

September ocean spray
cut through windbreaker
standing in wet sand
sniffled shivers watching
from Goosespit, Comox
the Orcas swimming up
the Strait of Georgia
to arctic feed-waters
as ancient whales
have always done

five minutes of majesty
more than twenty years
ago
perfectly remembered
boy I was
in every prairie
aurora borealis

now,
a sentimental
man
