Calm Winds Over the Sea

Adrift in the darkness, canvas sail gleams,
night sky aglow with satiny moonbeams.
Calm winds tread over a nonchalant sea
the world revolves in perfect harmony.

Inside a heart, waves crash upon a shore
turbulent weather lasts forever more.
A love that once breathed life into her sails
was but a flurry, pretender of gales.

Treasure lies deep beneath the salty brine.
A wounded heart waits to cast off the line.
When high tide ebbs at the moons direction,
a forgiving heart forgets rejection.

Sea will spill upon the shore its treasure
in a wealth of love that knows no measure.

Peaches, this is a very lovely sonnet. Probably make an excellent Jimmy Buffet song. Couple more verses and you could retire. LOL Peace dear Peaches:)

I'll get right on it! If the Keys weren't so full of tourists I'd retire there. Thanks, Danny.
