  1. I read this out aloud and admired the rhyming cadence in your verses ~ Its a light hearted adventure but the narrator girl has some spunk and courage ~ I specially like this part:

    They call my soul, the emerald seas
    My heart eases in the breeze
    Ship in full kilter, at the control
    The emerald seas, they call my soul

    Thanks for linking up with D’verse ~

    • Thank you Grace. It was a wonderful prompt and Joel Robinson’s fantastic photos provided much for my muse to well – muse. But once I saw the above photo, the girl’s story just unfolded itself before me and I had to go with it.

  2. smiles…i think you captured the soul of the sailor…even down to the personality…ha…land can be a foreign place to them…having been gone so long from civilization….

    • An acquaintance once worked for a cruise line for quite a few years. When he left, he said the first year back on land for such an extended length was the hardest. Thanks Brian.

  3. This reminds me how blessed i am to be BY bay and river..gulf..stream..pond..elated…living here…AND to be the water is to be so free..to be an ocean never ends! a life in free!WHERE may be where WE are ALL meant
    to be!simplyFREE!

  4. Oh how I enjoyed what you did with the picture, Raivenne; and you have really captured the heart of the sailor here! This was a neat poem to read aloud.

So? What do you think?
