Thank you for an elegant completion to my three lines!
Thank you for “kicking” me in that direction! 😉
I like the spiritual overtones on this one.
Before I came up with these two lines, I had several other two-liners, which just didn’t seem to work. This one did…and does. 😉
That is often the way. Sometimes I’m not quite happy but end up sticking with something that’s not quite right due to time pressure, but I usually feel better if I putz around until I find something better. I’m glad you did, too.
“putz around” Haven’t heard that phrase since I lived in Pennsylvania Dutch country years ago. Make me smile! 😉
😉 I’m from NY originally–we talk funny back East. I’ll never lose that even though I’m in Seattle now
Hmmm gets the thoughts reeling. I like that.
Rather like fishermen reeling in their catch, I suppose… 😉
Many a sailor’s spirit has been raised by the mystery of the flesh methinks 😉
Oh, you do, do you? 😉
good trio; luv it
An extraordinary completion mmt … well done, had some trouble to adjust to the ‘picture’ in your second stanza.
Trouble? I’m not sure what you mean, but glad that you made your way through the words safely! 😉
I had some ttrouble with getting the picture through your second stanza. I had to read it several times, but made the way safe.
This is one of those times that picture and words don’t necessarily match up! 😉
He!he!These three together would lure even a saint;-)Unique take MMT 🙂
nicely done – a bit of mystery for the imagination to play around with. i like it. 🙂
Mystery is good for the soul, don’t you think? 😉
yes, very much so. adds the right spice for a sparkly outlook in life. ☺
This is so beautiful.
As always, very well done. Do enjoy visiting your part of the world.
I’m glad you can stop by, LaVoice!
Creative and a little spooky but wonderful completion ~ great shot for SWF too ~ carol, xxx
Only a little spooky? 😉 Thanks, Carol!

Sailors always have a purpose for coming to land as strangers.
I always like lighthouses
