Moored dreams

The NaPoWriMo challenge is to write a poem a day for the month of April.

Tantalizing sea beckons,

the boats moored on the shore.

Throw caution to the winds,

come ride the waves, be free.

You might be safe ashore,

but  dry land’s not for you.

A little rough weather is,

What it was, a choppy sea.

 

Let the spray hit you on the face.

Don’t be afraid to get wet,

Your destiny is to sail,

with your bow , high and proud.

 

Don’t abandon your dreams,

Make them a reality.

Life is for living,

not for feeling safe,

and  hiding.

 

The stump of the tree,

cries out for help,

with broken arms outstretched.

He can’t move so he stays put,

on the burning sand,

Why do you remain ashore?

      Sweepy, I think we sometimes lack the courage to out on a limb and resort to doing the safest thing, thanks.

  1. This is so deep. I loved these lines:

    The stump of the tree,

    cries out for help,

    with broken arms outstretched.

    He can’t move so he stays put,

    on the burning sand,

    Why do you remain ashore?

    Indeed, girlfriend, indeed. 😉

    Tameka, I really love the reactions to my impromptu poems. Thank you for reading and for your wonderful comment.

    Ooo I do wish to be tossed again to the sea…I've been in the land so long. I think that's why I prefer the tent spirituality 🙂 There's so much more to see and feel and experience.

    Loved this!

      Yes, you are so right, Melissa. Life cannot be lived on the safe shores but has to be lived out in the sea, everyday is a new challenge.

Share your thoughts before leaving :)
