“Hillside outcropping of houses, churches…” Lubec, Maine.

Oft shrouded in mist and fog,
Hillside outcropping of houses,
Churches, roads dock descending,
Narrow channel, divides Lubec,
Maine from Canada. Opposite
Shores, fast-moving tidal waters
Bring families together, lobster
Boats, island homes, light-glowing
Frosted windows, In-laws, parents
Live on Campobello Island, cousins
Reside in Lubec. Customs agents
Know border-crossing locals, single
Bridge connects more than two
Countries, it connects families,
Livelihoods, communities, both
Sides of the water are home.

Thanks for reading.
