Rockport...Visual Imagery - Poem by John Tansey

Pea green sea squalls,
Whorled out of a Nor’easter
Ping with the sting of the ocean’s spray.

Wind roped ocean waves
Lope, in the wind sail gales,
The chilled cheeks of my taut face,
Shouting windward and away...

Far up the winding slate rock walls of the jetty;
The wreckage of a whaler, among white caps
And Narwhale bones.

The bowsprit of the sea,
Rises like a fish tale out of the coast:

The imagined mermaid of the manatae...
