If Nantucket Nectar Lids Were Haikus

Little Gray Lady
Of the Fogbound Sea deeded

Dwellers of Nantuck
plant eastern red juniper
against the fabled winds.

One Algonquin isle
three zip codes for one seaport
famous tourist town.

Maria Mitchell
pioneer among the stars
Nantucket Sound born.

The old cornmeal mill
over two hundred years old
a historic site?

is the average high temp here
in January.

Cars and bikes won’t fit
down old, narrow Shell Street.
Enjoy your plum juice.

Island settlers
Cultivated cranberries—
others did it first.

Sandy, Sterile soil
tempting no one to this day
says Britannica.
