I AM OKAY.
This just came to me, and so, I write.
i hold in my hands a cruise line brochure :
it tells me to pull the anchor
from the dull life i have,
telling the adventurer within me
to sail away .
i have to get rid of the sea monster
that lives in the place i once did ...
and so i make the call ...
and i am leaving tomorrow to find
myself again .
hopefully, the turquoise complexities
of the seven seas will soothe the
furious beast inside
that is eroding the beach of my soul
and bring me peace.
(c) 2005, Karla Dorman.

|Cruises are so much fun and take you away. They do bring Peace, and everyone on a cruise is like one happy family, no fighting, no arguing, everthing peaceful and treatment you get, OH, so kind and of being so pampered I can remember. Met an 80 year old lady and went into the swimming pool with her. Met a young girl who was sea sick and went in the jacuzzi with herand mother. Friends I made the world over. Even a young college man talked to me in the pool which does not happen at home much in pools. Great cruising to you in the future too.|

|Damn... server went down again!! I know that you are well-able to reproduce in your own heart and soul whatever magic a Carnival Cruise could otherwise create for you, Karla - nice as they might be!! Just add to that all the $$ you will be savin in the meantime, and you're laughing... some wonderful sentiments and lines in this write of longing and ascendency. TY Kate xx|

|Excellent write... some sail, some go to the mountains, others to the forest... at times, one hour of solitude is better then days of company...|

|Let the winds of change blow you where they may when you sail away, they usually blow you to where you want to go. Excellent Karla.

|sometimes a cruise can offer perspective and allow us to beach our thoughts for a while as we lie in the sun and tan our souls ...
yes, an excellent metaphoric poem ...
|Reviewed by E T Waldron
|Karla an excellent metaphor ! How well we all know this feeling, the need to bring back some of the excitememnt of times we enjoyed when we get bogged down in life's dull routine. Godd to write it out, and keep doing it until you find your balance and some topic excites you enough to forget your blues;-)
