Imagination

Standing at the edge of the bay, I imagine a watery grave where lie Remains of an old Spanish galleon Laden with silver coins encrusted Barnacles and unsalvaged treasure, Where once the buccaneers partied After a successful foray in a placid sea In those moments I dance a sarabande As my vivid imagination runs amok.

Thanks, Caren. My imagination was running amok. Sometimes that happens to me...hey, you know that feeling!

Blimey, I thought you’d turned into Otis Redding. No, seriously, a delightful and indulgent moment of reverie… surely the least any artistic mind should allow itself. Terry

Hey, Terry, come to think of it, I should have sat "on the dock of the bay!" Hmmmm...hey, you can write that one! Thanks so much for your thoughts on my poem.

(chuckling) That's how I felt standing there at the edge of the bay, John, so I reckon my poem made sense. Argggh!
