Thoughts on time, the cityscape, etc.

How long is the Seabus ride between North Vancouver and Vancouver? The time it takes to write one haiku:

water-painted sky

gray, cut-out buildings, stage set

for hidden dramas

Vancouver skyline

(What was in my mind is that the city, viewed from the North Shore and flattened by the gray day, looked like a two-dimensional stage backdrop, but with none of the actors visible — like a false facade behind which many small dramas are enacted, unseen. Make any sense? Maybe it doesn’t have to…. just musings for a gray day and a Seabus ride…)
