Seventh Son Sails On

Updated on June 5, 2012

Seven hearts
Scattered by the winds of desire
Each to their own corner of the earth

Layla
Pocahontas
Kahina
Helen
Lady Kriemheld
La Llorona
Cleopatra

Seven tears
Each drop exploding onto passions fire
One by one wondering of their hearts worth

Longing
Despair
Sorrow
Guilt
Loneliness
Sacrifice
Anguish

Seven seas
As the water becomes deeper
The waves come ashore in search of a new birth

Bengal
Khambhat
Malacca
Persian
Singapore
China
Thailand

Seven continents
The deserted hearts becoming wilder and wilder
And yet focused like a compass that points only north

Hope
Love
Joy
Paradise
Pleasure
Content
Ecstasy

Seven sons
Awaiting their dream lover
Yet I continue to sail past my beckoning berth

      @suziecat - Thank you. I'm glad you stopped by too. Definitely like your name... sassy...

      @Mhatter - You called it... it was an idea I had and I wasn't really sure if I "pulled it off" or not. I'd say 90% of the time I start with something and end up elsewhere. Most times I'm happy with where the trail leads. I guess the main thing is to start the walk....
