This Same Boat

this same boat
speaking with no one
driven by
hooves of white air
outward, is 
one of nature's most 
intense images, takes the 
expression of a body
becomes movement
becomes wave
becomes a guileless 
flower of man

I am spending the week in Seabrook Island, SC and was inspired to write this short poem as I was sitting on the beach this afternoon, doodling in my notebook, and spotted a lonely boat.

  1. I love your personification of the boat. A beautiful and relaxing image, both your poem and seeing an actual boat. Most fun to be in one! I love S.C. 💓 Enjoy your time and thank you for taking the time to write and share. 😊

    1. Thanks, Michele! Sometimes it’s reward enough just to capture a moment in such beautiful scenery. I love it here, too, and although I don’t live far (Charlotte), I don’t get down here nearly enough. 🙂

  2. I hope you are enjoying Seabrook, Island :)…it looks beautiful, serene…and the poem captures the effortless beauty of nature sharing its power with man as he becomes a part of its landscape. Wonderful.
