Soliton

Posted in Poetry by Mike Stay on 2010 May 7

With a stroke, the pilot glides forward across the lake.
He does not know the names of the vortices cast off by his oar;
Neither is he known to the Sun.

    Here’s an attempt at expressing the sentiment as a haiku:

    Plunge and stroke, two whorls
    Unnamed to the rower turn
    As sun ignores man.
