Walking the Shore of Newfoundland

by Andrew Williams

As thunder rumbles from the nimbus overhead,

a northern Fulmer wings its way over the glassy

glacial giant. The frozen mammoth levitates

above the ocean floor, glistening a deep aquamarine.

Though blue bolts from heaven touch down,

waves whump, and waftings slap the shore,

the solid magic carpet floats at its own pace,

unmoved by the whirling cone of grayish haze.

Yet through the dimness I still see the clowns

of the sea waddling by the cliffs, the humpbacks

high-fiving the startled seaway, and a familiar

figure as a colossal wave holds up a mirror.
