Mariners
by David Drowley
Mariners in our wanderlust,
We sail beyond the horizon’s curve.
Fearful, we dare the briny deep
Out of faith in the dreams we serve.

WANDERLUST
by Line Gauthier


willowy billowy daydreams 
whirlwind of playful fantasy
worshiping mystical moonbeams
waywardly sailing on a sea

welcoming beckoning mermaids
whispering invites to extremes

Half-knitted dreams and wistful wanderlust.

Frank Osgood

From 1890 until my last days,

And other body appendages,
To distant earthly destinations, 
Both sensational...
