Cutting through the Waters


 

CUTTING THROUGH THE WATERS
 
Cutting through the waters,
Buffeted by breeze,
Nothing beats the freedom
Of the open seas.
 
Longing eyes look forward
To some distant shore,
Lusting for adventures
As in days of yore.
 
Nearer still and nearer
Ship approaches land,
Soon we will be welcomed
By the sun-drenched sand.
 
Cutting through the waters
Seeking distant leas,
Nothing beats the freedom
Of the open seas.

  1. Nice poem….Photo gives a little warmth in this cold and blistery day.
    Ruby Tuesday-shopping time.

  2. I liked the rhyming….not an easy write ..well expressed..

  3. This looks and sounds divine! I agree, being by the water (and for me,to swim, in the water) is the best place there is. Ultimate freedom.
