SHARE THE TRIP

 

Searching for the One

Broad Reach

With the early morning off-shore breeze

on a broad-reach tacking toward shore

thinking on the harbor once promised

and if I really ever wanted more

 

Walking weatherworn docks

boat secured in its’ slip

morning finds me wandering

looking for one to share the trip

 

Visiting the local breakfast house

sounding for that sympathetic ear

“Hey Sailor, ….another warm-up?”

“Ah … what? Oh … yes dear.”

 

Sun Shield

 

I watch while they quickly consume

devouring needed calories for the day

witnessing distorted mental pathways

their thought’s exposed and on display

 

The open ocean

the only truth

supporting life and building land

sailing offshore each day alone

was never this sailor’s real plan

 

Open Ocean 2

 

Land-lubbers scurry ‘round their cities

building ant-hills atop one another

the open oceans of Mother Earth

would probably make them shudder

 

Finding that very special individual

adds to the complexity of the quest

though I grow much older

I’ll continue looking for the best

 

Upon this Earth, the lady doth exist

my knowledge proves this to be true

but finding that one particular girl

has its’ own way of making me blue

 

Walking weatherworn docks

boat secured in its’ slip

morning finds me wandering

looking for one to share the trip

 

The energy and freedom of youth

is definitely wasted on the young

with knowledge only gained in time

can one’s own song be sung

 

Walking weatherworn docks

boat secured in its’ slip

afternoon finds me wandering

looking for one to share the trip

 

These are the simple thoughts

of a Sailor who’s now grown old

questioning some of the choices

knowing the dream can not be sold

 

Wandering early in the evening

a friendly Pub to get a sip

another place for me to search

looking for one to share the trip

 

Open Ocean

 

Gathering courage from Captain Morgan

chased with a shot or two for the smile

telling inebriated ‘tall tales’ of life at sea

a gallant effort going that extra mile

 

Close moves an interesting companion

a serendipitous moment in time

wondering .…could she be the one?

this evening may end sublime

 

Walking weatherworn docks

she called my boat a ship

I smile as I continue

looking for one to share the trip

About Sailor

Yup, it's me! The author of all you read here (except for the comments of course). Having been asked to write a short article for "About Yourself", I was forced to labor (for a moment-or-two), upon what eloquent words I might use to explain myself. ................................................................................................................ This simple thought process yielded an even simpler solution. You need but read the words I have published here. All the writings (except for the Comments), are copyrighted ©, the moment the "post" is digitized and made available to the world (WWW) by the servers at namecheap, the best Hosting service you'll ever need. http://www.namecheap.com?aff=15525 Please read: "Proprietary Rights". ............................................................................................................. Now, to continue with "About Me". I am sure you will find a few of my views embedded within my poems, and, if I would quit procrastinating, within the chapters of my future novels. .............................................................................................................. I would ask you all to subscribe to "RANDOM THOUGHTS"
