A Paper Boat

	           
Life journeying through waves of events
With each breath drawing to its terminal point
Like a paper boat braving the turbulent currents
And every move loosening its folds and joint

How to spend love’s inexhaustible treasure?
How to drown in this fathomless sea
How short is the time to share this pleasure!
Merge souls defying recognition as you and me

Enjoy the boat ride while its strength stays
Deny not to your eyes the beauty of open seas
Lend your ears to the music of serene waves
Milk every moment each possibility squeeze

Petty squabbles and clashes steal irretrievable time
Let the fine instincts of giving emerge from soul
Let the poetry of love float in horizon and rhyme  
For death is lying in ambush to play its role 

WINNER in the Debbie Guzzi Competition "Something Different" Judged on

When contest sponsors break their own contest rules/ requirements it shows that some should never be sponsors in my opinion. I guess "new poem" meant one written back in 2011, huh John? I had many previous contest winning poems that I could have entered but I followed rules that you decided to ignore !

I have responded to your snippy soup mail. sorry it wasn't fast enough...I had to go fishing, root for the patriots(also cheaters), spend some time with my family and read a few stories to my granddaughter. Have a happy Sunday.

***Write one NEW POEM on the theme of INSIDE MY HEAD.**** We "OLD" poets always have a lot of "stuff" taking up space inside our heads. Now here's the chance to tell the muse "DO SOMETHING WITH THIS STUFF" Any form is acceptable. NO PICTURES...poetry is a written form and should paint a picture. NO NAMES - DATE YOUR POEM Prizes PLACEMENTS AT WHIM OF CONTEST SPONSOR ^^^^^Sure are, even if you do not follow contest requirements. 9th placement.

Did you forget or just decide only the losers should have followed your requirements?

Yes, we are all travelers on a stormy sea. The ending is reminiscent of Omar Khayam. Fine work. Matthew Anish
