Their Journey (poem)

The couple began their journey at sea

With love and promise they ventured ahead

To create for themselves a memory

Mid all of the richness heaven may shed


With time and some morning they opened eyes

When oceans of doubt loosed waves of distress

While shadows in fog were whispering lies

Was this the promise they sought to caress


How could love back when be this sweet despair

To abandon hope might correct their flaw

But in the murky waters floating there

Drew tears of truth at something that they saw


What was it in the waters of their blight

To meet unknown tomorrows holding tight

I was drawn to the many stories of escaping immigrants who sought a new life risking it all on the sea in an attempt to reach a new world of hope. Yes, they must have seen the reflection of their own happy hearts in the moonlight waters, as they paddled toward the sun's last setting.

I like how you leave this open ended...we can think about our own personal blights or those that affect the world at large.
