Painting Poetically

Updated on February 09, 2008

Sailing Love's Course

 

A silence pierced unknown darkness 
 
in my ship's planks that are brittle. 
 
Call to her what brings you to bless 
 
my heart's carving with your whittle. 
 
 
A light guides this lonely sailor
 
traveling through hurtful's thick fog. 
 
A lonely semblance in blights blur 
 
is all I could write in my log. 
 
 
A fairness which is so very divine.
 
She showed her face of an angel. 
 
Sense now steers my ship to align 
 
within course's perfect angle. 
 
 
Destination was unknown prior.
 
I have a purpose in my sojourn. 
 
You who I have come to admire 
 
blow my sails through every turn. 
 
 
I turn to glance and see your face.
 
I give you thanks my blessed thee. 
 
My humble vessel you do grace 
 
as I sail through life's lonely sea.

      a good analogy, the ship - I write mostly unpoetry in non-form, but it's lovely to see your work in true poetic form.

      Iounn,

      Thank you very much for reading!!! I really appreciate it. Prose is not always in meter and I think of it as painting pictures for the reader. I think you do a fine job at writing unpoetry.Cheers,

      Ben
