I Sail This Ship Alone

As the last opalescent glow of sunset fades away I sail this ship alone towards a crimson horizon over a starlit sea to the soft lapping of waves which lullaby my destiny I sail this ship alone far from the coral sand far from the pebbled beach far from my sun-kissed land Tonight there is no moon but there's a sparkle in the sky a starry night so still filled with beacons of bright light Tomorrow births a new dawn a song within a dream meadows of yellow buttercups and fields of evergreen Tomorrow I'll be greeted by a pink-winged butterfly a host of daffodils, and golden dandelions a rose within a smile Tomorrow I stroll along a new shore feel fresh salt spray on my cheek dance bare-foot in the wind as Spring whispers on the breeze.

In school many years ago, we would sketch an image on a single page. As one flicked the pages, we could see we made a home made movie. What incredible joy it would be to do exactly the same with your poems Charmaine. Just imagine what you would view, something spectacular and breathtaking. Next time you read this one for example, close your eyes, and vision your words, dream deep, and I guarantee, you'll touch what you've written about. Now that's POETRY ;) James xx :)

You can always tell a great poem by the way it paints a picture for the reader. Well done!

So many vivid images in your poem, sweet friend. I'm so glad you felt better after a new day dawned. Loneliness is a burden that impedes many of us as we try to live happy lives. Thank you for your friendship, dear! Love you, Carolyn
