Gitche Gumee 2016

Gordon Lightfoot, best known as a folk, country and folk-pop songwriter, is a North American treasure. I was thinking of his song “The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald” today whilst working in my garden (great song!).

We have had only .5 inches of rain since June 5th, and we received it on June 5th. Pretty dry! And I was thinking of the incredible amount of water we are surrounded by on the lower peninsula of Michigan. The irony is sort of ‘in your face’: Surrounded by water and not a drop to be had. An inspiration for this haiku. Enjoy!

Water everywhere
But she’s giving up her dead
Not a drop inland



Thank you for following! I hope you return soon.
