The vivid sailboats from the shore

are moving smoothly like soft waves

avoiding the wind and squall


I sailed with you away from the crowd

of unkind whispers from their mouths

and we confined ourselves strangely


Our world is not their world

we brought our heaven on this water

feasting together without judgments

    “Somewhere beyond the sea. Somewhere waiting for me. My lover stands on golden sands & watches the ships that go sailing!” Made me think of this song. 🙂

    I’ve read several of your poems. I keep returning to this one; its my favorite of your recent post….but for some reason,,,,the poems in the December archives are particularly apealing…to me. I try not to analize but go by my gut.
