Emerald Ocean

I walked to the ocean and my boat
I had not been there in a long time.
Covered in moss I wondered would it float.

The air was perfect the ocean mine.
Huge waves did their dance along the shore.
I had not been there in a long time.

A perfect day I couldn't ask for more.
Graceful seagulls flying overhead.
Huge waves did their dance along the shore.

Distant horizon sun glowing red.
Emerald colored waters completed scene.
Graceful seagulls flying overhead.

There are moments that seem like a dream.
Perfection's the gift that filled my eyes.
Emerald colored waters completed scene.

At moments like those I realize.
Perfection's the gift that filled my eyes.
I walked to the ocean and my boat.
Covered with moss I hoped it would float.

Terzanelle for my friend Eileen.

    Hello, Mr boat owner.... :) Hope your boat is still floating, moss and all! :) Dropping by to say HI and to ask you to check your soup mail...or would you prefer a message in a bottle! ;)

    This poem floated gently along on rippling waves. Perfection from beginning to end

    I used to go out fishing with friends on a boat. Water is calming to the soul. Unless your swimming with a shark ;} Last night was the first night of shark week on discovery channel, Thanks for re- reading my Swan poem,,,, you could always read older ones. You might like my Trouble with Trolls ;}

    This was a piece full of effervescence & serenity. Time to buy me a boat of my own and sail these waters. Awesome job!

    Your friend Eileen loves the emerald water, the gulls, the tranquility of the scene, and the perfection of this day as portrayed in your best form- the terazanelle! I so connect with your writing when you use this form...beautiful, serene, sweet! :) Ok, now that I've had my fill...you can bend your thoughts along a line again! ;) I'll be patient till the next time. Thanks, Richard! :) You've inspired me to try my hand at one! Will probably fall flat, but.....will try. Licia's comment? Spot on!

    You surely would "float Eileen's boat" with this emerald. What a lovely, peaceful scene you've sketched here. Well done, Richard. You're the master of the terzanelle. Licia :-)
