The Ship of Life..a Haiku Influenced Poem

Updated on July 19, 2013
darker tides
darker tides


Storm tossed ship of life,

full of worry, full of strife.

Calmer tides we seek.


Birthright given each,

happiness we all beseech.

Harshness it does wreak.


Set sails in the sun,

hardest work is then begun.

No world for the meek.


Reaching calmer shore,

despite harsh storming, its roar.

Life is not so bleak.


Calmer shore
Calmer shore

      Even though the grass isn't always greener on the other side, it could well be sunnier. Very nicely done. Your art is always an inspiration, too.
